Fashion meets function with Echo Touch® gloves. Created with eLink™ fabric, these gloves are compatible with the iPod, iPhone, iPad and other touchscreen devices. The idea came to the company after top executives fielded complaints from their friends, co-workers and children or experienced the problem of attempting to text, email or answer calls in the cold.

“During the winter, so many freeze while trying to use their iPhones,” says Lynn Roberts, VP of Communications at Echo Design. “I couldn’t believe there was nothing fashionable in the market to solve the problem. So we decided to make them ourselves.”

Greeted with unparalleled success, the Echo Touch® glove has been one of the 88 year-old company’s top sellers. The collection includes gloves for men, women and children in wool, leather and cashmere and is available in an extensive range of colors, from brights to neutrals.

“We’ve been answering the needs of our customers for decades,” Roberts states. “Whether delivering the perfect silk scarf, a stylish and cozy neck ring, beach bags for digital readers and Echo Touch® gloves, we’re always thinking about the next thing, the next problem we can solve, the next need we can meet. Our latest innovations in touch gloves include aloe and thinsulate linings, and weather resistant finishes.”

Isn’t winter grey enough? Let Echo brighten up this holiday season with colorful Echo Touch® gloves that will keep you warm and in touch with family and friends, the perfect gift for anyone on your list.
