These gloves used the Dagda and his attributes as inspiration.

Out of a picot edged cuff springs sets of cabled lines twisting their way up the glove, seemingly innocent twisted cables but which add great strength to the glove helping it fit snug to the hand. They then disappear once again into a complimenting picot edge which flares gently around the fingers. The thumb gusset appears like magic from the glove and a twisted cable runs the length of it; before disappearing into a matching flared picot edge.
