Donkey Gloves are designed by horticulturist and former Blue Peter Gardener, Clare Cooke. Clare is a Kew-trained horticulturist with more than 30 years experience in the industry. She has spent her entire working life searching for the perfect glove - this is how Donkey Gloves were born. The brand name is inspired by the real donkey work of Clare’s small-holding lifestyle on Dartmoor: outdoors all day, running a private animal sanctuary and taking care of vegetable and flower gardens. Clare is very hands on and wears her gloves every day.
Profits from Donkey Gloves go to support Clare's Farm, a private animal sanctuary on Dartmoor where the business is based. See Instagram #claresfarm.
