Herschel Supply Co. Partners with Watson Gloves on Collaborative Gloves for Work and Play
VANCOUVER, BC, JUNE 1, 2021—Herschel Supply Co. is proud to partner with Watson Gloves, Canada’s largest retail distributor of quality gloves on a collaborative glove made for work, play, and weekend projects in the Pacific Northwest.
Handmade in Vancouver, the limited-edition Herschel Shop Glove reimagines the original work glove with 100% premium full-grain leather. The unique interlocking fibres of the full-grain leather used to construct the glove offer flexibility, insulation, and a soft feel while offering excellent strength and durability.
Available in Tan with a Woodland Camo thumb and trim, the collaborative glove is finished with a debossed Herschel Supply classic logo on back of hand and debossed Watson Gloves logo on the finger.
“We’re excited to partner with another like-minded brand also founded in Vancouver, BC to collaborate on a shop glove that speaks to Watson Gloves high-quality craftsmanship as well as Herschel Supply’s approach to design,” says Jamie Cormack, Managing Director and Co-Founder at Herschel Supply. “The versatile glove incorporates signature Watson and Herschel design details while championing functional utility and is equally perfect for weekend projects in the backyard or a day on the motorbike.”
“Something that we are really proud of is our heritage,” says Laura Whitlock, Director of Marketing and Innovation at Watson Gloves. “Over a century in business with roots in Vancouver, partnering with Herschel, a company with similar family values, timeless product and a globally recognized brand, was an exciting moment for us. Two local companies collaborating to bring workwear to lifestyle with the Watson Gloves for Herschel Supply Shop Glove. Designed with the wearer in mind, featuring Herschel’s iconic Woodland Camo print and Watson’s signature leather pattern, we are proud to handcraft these limited-edition gloves in Canada for our customers.”
