(Scroll down to view this video) Our Chief Designer Sharone answers questions about our UV Sun Gauntlets which are UPF 50+ fashionable sun protective gloves and arm sleeves for women. 
In this series, Sharone discusses fabric quality and the holy grail of finding a product that is both well made AND made of quality fabric!

Here are the boxes she checks when selecting fabric for our UV Sun Gauntlets collection:

The fabric -
Is the fabric tested and rated UPF 50+?
Is it breathable?
Is it thermo-regulated to keep your skin warm or cool?
Is it odor resistant?
Is it quick drying?
Does it have 4-way stretch?
Is the fabric permanently sun protective?
Is the fabric made in a sustainable manner using renewal energy?
Is the fabric safe for us to wear on our skin? (OEKO-Tex Standard 100 certified?)

If the fabric meets all of the above, is it available in fashionable prints and colors?
