Etsy Monday: X Mittens

by Megan on January 2nd, 2012

Sometimes I see a shop and it takes every ounce of willpower I have not to click buy on everything. Today’s featured Etsy shop is a prime example. XMittens creates vegan recycled fleece fingerless mittens that make me all warm and fuzzy inside. The shop’s owner, Amber began XMittens when she “realized that I could create an alternative textile and apparel business that emphasizes eco-accountability, thoughtful design and material sourcing, creates well-fitting and durable items, and considers the body an exhibition space for functional art-to-wear.” And, with my love of all things organic and sustainable, this shop is totally my cup of tea!

Red extra long fingerless gloves

I love love love everything about these. The extra long length, the thumb covering, the color, and of course, that they are made from¬† fleece is made with up to 89% recycled polyester content. Another cool feature? Each package is wrapped with the leftover material made into a skinny scarf. So it’s like two items for the price of one!

Hot Pink Recycled fingerless gloves

These hot pink gloves are a size large, but they also come in small and medium. These gloves are thumbless and have black stitching. I totally dig them.
