Updated Leather Touchscreen Gloves
Extending last years success
30 OCTOBER 2013, VENLO, THE NETHERLANDS
SummaryExtending last years success with an update that improves the Leather Touchscreen Gloves and makes them more affordable.
We've put a lot of effort into improving the manufacturing process of the nanotechnology that enables touchscreen compatibility in our leather gloves. We're now able to manufacture this nanotechnology for a lower price, which is good news because it allows us to make this year’s version of the successful leather touchscreen gloves a full 30% more affordable! As of today, the gloves are available for €89.95 (in the same price range as our Crochet gloves) compared to last year’s price of €129.95.
Although the biggest changes were made behind the scenes, we did make small yet noticeable improvements to the design as well; the new version of the gloves features a soft cashmere lining. We’ve also enhanced the cut for an even better fit; the wrist is now 5mm longer in order to accommodate the gap between the gloves and shorter jacket sleeves. Our sizes are similar to the industry standard, making it easy to determine your size.
Made out of Ethiopian lambskin leather, nanotechnology integrated into the leather of the gloves mimics the conductive properties of the human skin, making the gloves touchscreen compatible. The nanotechnology functions independently from the human skin, enabling us to fully insulate the gloves with a soft cashmere lining.
Mujjo’s introduction of the leather touchscreen gloves in 2012 was a huge success. The design, high-end materials and unique functionality appealed to a large design conscious audience worldwide. Editors from various publications, including Wired, Fast Company, CultOfMac and Business Insider absolutely loved the leather gloves and just had to have them.
To celebrate the occasion, we’ve decided to shoot a video in a Douglas DC4, a stunning four-engined propeller-driven airliner manufactured in the mid 40′s: vimeo.com/mujjo
The leather touchscreen gloves, available in sizes: 7.5, 8, 8.5 and 9 are available to order on mujjo.com.

We believe to create great products; we have to start with a simple idea and then craft around that intention. We obsessively try to keep it as simple as possible, while trying to make each part as good as possible, every stitch, every button, they have all been intensively thought out. While it’s not easy to keep things simple, it does pay off to create a product that is perfect in a sense of simplicity to that extent that you cannot leave anything away without compromising it’s intention.
It’s part of our personalities to keep challenging ourselves, raising the bar on a daily bases. This certainly doesn’t make things easy for ourselves, but we simply don’t know how to do it any other way. We get satisfaction out of trying to create an even better product or experience, it makes us feel good to try to improve it over and over again, it’s in our DNA.
