Tailored for fit. Crafted for wear. Designed for style.
Don’t you love it when you find an item that is well made from quality materials, looks stylish, stands the test of time, AND is socially responsible? Well we hope that is how you feel about Fields & Lane’s fabulous line of gloves!
Fields & Lanes attractive gloves range from $18.50 to $29.50 and can be used for gardening, work gloves, driving gloves or even just wearing out to a football game! All of the leather in the line is goat leather– known for being soft, flexible and naturally water-resistant. Note: goat leather, unlike most other leathers, does not crack or get hard when wet.
Although all of the leather used by the company is sourced in the USA, the gloves are made in a fair trade factory in San Isidro, Costa Rica where the Laughlin family has had strong ties since 1992. The family’s relationship with San Isidro began when they started helping La Escuela de Enseñanza Especial, a public school for children with special needs in Costa Rica. This naturally led to involvement in the community and the eventual decision to set up shop in San Isidro. The factory there now not only employs 22 people (with very little turn over!) but makes semiannual donations to La Escuela de Enseñanza Especial and monthly donations to support two homes for community members with special needs in San Isidro.
The company is a choice employer in the area, with fair wages, weekly incentives, and an employee credit union. The company even celebrates together, with a yearly trip to the beach, Mother’s and Father’s Day parties and a Christmas celebration where everyone receives useful gifts that help their families, like washing machines and other appliances. And of course the company supports the local soccer team, the Guerreros del Sur!
