Makers of Gold Leaf Gloves Celebrate 50 Years

Jayco, the company behind the world-renowned Gold-Leaf Gardening Glove brand, are proud and delighted to be celebrating their 50th anniversary in 2021.

Launched in 1971 by the late Jim Cooney, to address the shortage of high-quality welding and industrial leather gloves available in the UK, the company now owned and run by Peter Cooney, also later recognised the clear lack of premium quality gardening gloves on sale in garden centres.

With their extensive background and knowledge of superior leather gloves, they utilised years of expertise and experience to create the unique Gold Leaf Gardening Glove range.

Endorsed by the Royal Horticultural Society, and now widely used throughout the world by professional and amateur gardeners alike, Gold Leaf continues its strong growth as the ‘Rolls Royce’ of the gardening glove market and is looking forward to the next 50 years, with relish!
