The Touchpoint Leather Gloves Feature:
1) ADVANCED TOUCHSCREEN TECHNOLOGY: Featuring innovative Nanotechnology that mimics the touch of a human hand to operate personal devices while staying warm and dry.
2) QUALITY CRAFTSMANSHIP: Handcrafted with exceptional quality combining 100% leather exterior with an extra soft fleece interior to provide unrivaled warmth and experience.
3) EXCEPTIONAL FIT + DESIGN: We've spent the past months improving our fits with leathersmiths and designers who have worked with leading leather glove brands. It's treated to be specifically windproof, water and soil-resistant, and offers excellent anti-microbial properties.
4) WHOLESALE PRICE: We're selling these gloves exclusively to you on Kickstarter, cutting out the the middlemen and traditional retail markups, to offer the gloves at the revolutionary price of $65.
5) OUR GUARANTEE: You'll instantly see and feel the difference when you put on the Touchpoint glove. We're so confident that we guarantee it with free returns for store credit (see full details below).
How It Works
Our gloves mimic conductive properties of the human skin; this makes it touchscreen compatible. The surface of the glove alone is enough to work on a touchscreen. Therefore, we've been able to line it with extra soft fleece to keep you warmer. The gloves have been designed to provide seamless control of touchscreens, stylishly.
What You get
1) Complete control of touchscreen devices.
2) Warm hands protected from the elements.
3) A beautifully designed glove that stands on it's own for aesthetic.
4) A timeless investment piece that ages, grows with your hand, and becomes more valuable over time.
5) No more taking off and on gloves to interact with your phone.
6) No scratches or smudges on your phone from your fingers.
Arrival Before Christmas Holidays!
And by far, one of the best holiday gifts for 2014. It's something that everyone needs and can make use of. The gloves will retail for over $120 and since they are new to the market, they make the perfect gift for that person who has everything. We will have them sent out by December 15th, way before Christmas arrives!
Leather gloves have been keeping hands warm for centuries and are known for their durable exterior, insulation, and timeless look. But in light of recent technological advances, most gloves are no longer practical. These days, we need touchscreen technology when we're really doing anything with our phones. We need our gloves to keep us warm and perform even better for us!
We believe in creating accessories that exist in the space where fashion meets function. So, AEON Attire has created the Touchpoint Glove, premium leather gloves with nanotechnology that allows you to stay connected seamlessly and stylishly. Complete control at your fingertips.
I teamed up with leathersmiths and designers who had been working in the leather goods industry for over the past 8 years. The result was a new glove line that we developed to be one of the most comfortable, exceptionally designed, and amazingly functional leather gloves to date. Not only that, but by selling on Kickstarter, we're able to offer our gloves directly to customers at a revolutionary price of only $65. (Includes shipping in Canada)
Our Fits & Styles
Rider sizes: 7", 8", 9"
Quilt sizes: 6½", 7", 7½", 8"
If you are not sure about your glove size, measure the hand you normally write with at its widest point in inches (excluding the thumb), then round down to the nearest half or whole number - this will be your glove size.
Glove sizes come in half and whole numbers, between 7½ and 11 for men and 6 and 8½ for women. For example if your hand measures 8½ inches around its widest point (excluding the thumb), your glove size is 8½ (Note: one inch = 25.4mm).
Where gloves are sized S,M,L,and XL, the following guide will apply (measurements refer to your glove size, as calculated above)
For Men:- Small 7- 7½ Medium 8½ - 9 Large 9½
For Women:- Small 6 - 6½ Medium 7 - 7½ Large 8 - 8½
If you are between sizes, choose the smaller size. Gloves should be snug at first but will stretch.
Premium Craftsmanship & Detailing
We take pride in the exceptional quality of our gloves. We believe that the details matter and take great care in combining the best materials and craftsmanship in our products. Here are some of the highlights:
Do not put them in a washing machine or tumble dryer. Do not wring, do not bleach, do not iron and do not dry clean. These gloves should not be machine washed. Gently hand wipe if needed.
Help Get Production Started
We're raising $2,500 to get production started for the Touchpoint premium leather glove line. This includes the costs to meet production minimums, top quality leather, improving a few stylistic and functional aspects to the prototypes. Both gloves will have 2 adjustable buttons for the wrist instead of just 1. We also realized that the gloves needed to be more fitted in the fingertips to increase control when we tested prototypes. We've already developed most of the project through with our own money and time but we need your help to improve and bring the collection to life. This is the final push! Please support us at whatever level you're comfortable with. In return, you can get a pair of our amazing gloves. And by selling directly to you online, we can offer you our wholesale price of $65 CAD(W/shipping in Canada) down from over $110.
Simply try the gloves on and we guarantee that you'll instantly feel the difference or the return is on us. This means that if you don't like the gloves for any reason, just email us and we will send you a pre-paid shipping label to send the gloves back to us. The gloves will need to be unworn and in their original packaging, and returned within 14 days. Upon receipt of the gloves, we will issue you full store credit to use on our website. Note that free returns only apply to domestic orders - international shipping costs more, so we aren't able to provide a pre-paid shipping label for international returns.

Risks and challenges
Timing is the biggest risk for us. We're expecting to get them all shipped out before December 11th. The good news is that we went through the major challenge of getting glove production started already. We have successfully funded a project on Indiegogo and raised over 11k. As a result, our supply chain and manufacturing procedures have been streamlined and we're ready to go. We're looking to reduce the risk of delay this time through a few additional changes as well:
1) First, we are staggering our delivery dates into batches according to when our customers place their orders.
2) We're also going to start getting production started immediately once we hit our goal of $2,500, rather than waiting until the campaign ends.
3) We simplified our product offering (3-4 sizes only) This significantly helps us simplify the manufacturing, and also lets us offer these leather gloves at such a low price.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
