Gloves: The leather glove is an ideal barrier between the objects to be picked up and the skin of the hand, because of the excellent sense of touch it provides. It is heat-transfer resistant and a good low voltage insulating material. Gloves are made by cutting suitable leather using steel dies and a hydraulic press. They are then stitched by using specialized sewing machines. Triad, a monolithic, hydrophilic, thermoplastic copolymer membrane is used as glove inserts. There are three types of gloves viz. industrial gloves or work gloves, dress gloves and sports gloves Industrial gloves are manufactured according to the specific needs of the industries with the inner reinforcements such as metal plates, asbestos, wadding etc. These leather gloves are largely used in steel, chemical and glass industries. Industrial gloves are usually made from buff and cow chrome crust splits. The dress gloves are mainly used in cold countries to protect the hands from acute cold weather. They are generally made from hair sheep, wool sheep and lambskins and to a lesser degree from deer, pig, goat and kidskins. Sports gloves are used to protect hands during sports events. They are also made from the same leathers, which are used for dress gloves. E.g. horse riding gloves, motor bike riding gloves, golf gloves, etc. Glove sizes for ladies and gents are given in the table below Glove sizes: Table - Ladies S = 6.5 M = 7 L = 7.5 XL = 8 Gents S = 8 M = 8.5to 9 L = 9.5to 10 XL = 10.5 to 11

Introduction to design:- In the process of manufacturing and marketing, designing is considered to be the most important process. In the principle of designing, a good design should be easy for making and selling. The design should be simple and attractive because production and productivity are the key factors for a successful commercial venture. Assembling too many components for multi- purpose functions may be avoided as it affects the important aspects of designing viz., size, shape, structure and aesthetic value. In good designing, techniques and technical skills are very important. A good design should not impair the functions of the products for which they are manufactured. For example a wallet or a coin purse must hold currencies or coins and serve for its functions. If the products do not serve for its intended functions, any added decorations to enhance the rich appearance of the articles will be of no use and such designs will affect the sale of products in the markets to a considerable extent. Some designs may be very easy to manufacture due to less assembling components but leather consumption may be more resulting in more wastage of leathers but it is compensated with ease of operation and increase in productivity. Some designs may be very difficult to manufacture due to multiple components assembly but leather consumption may be less resulting in less wastage of leathers but the production takes longer time and productivity slows down. So, in good designing, a judicious

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
