Gloves are hand-worn accessories designed to protect the wearer's hands from various hazards or elements. They come in different styles, materials, and purposes. For example, work gloves are designed for different types of manual labor, such as construction, welding, or gardening, and they may be made from leather, rubber, or synthetic materials. Medical gloves are worn by healthcare professionals to prevent the spread of infectious diseases and can be made from latex, nitrile, or vinyl. Winter gloves are designed to keep hands warm in cold weather and may be made from wool, leather, or synthetic materials. Fashion gloves are also available, which are designed for style rather than function and can be made from various materials such as silk, lace, or leather. There are also disposable gloves, such as those used in food handling or cleaning, that are designed for single-use. Gloves can be found in a variety of sizes, colors, and designs to suit different needs and preferences.
