Talk, text and tweet with the simple touch, tap or slide of a gloved hand.

In our current age of technology, touch-screen make staying up to date on the latest happenings a snap…well, slide. But when the weather outside turns frightful, it’s on with the gloves and off with the iPhone. Want to take a call while running errands downtown? You’ll have to take off those mittens first. Needless to say, many of us prefer to keep our extremities toasty and chic over frigid and bare. No wonder it’s so hard to connect with people during the holidays.

Thankfully, Dorothy Gaspar, of the infamous glove line Gaspar Gloves, has come to the rescue this season with a new collection that solves our annual problem of warmth versus technology. Gaspar Gloves with TouchTec give the wearer the ability to fully use any piece of touch-screen technology, without having to take off their gloves. TouchTec imitates human skin by increasing the sensitivity of the leather and allowing you free-range usage of all gadgets. The patented nano-technology arguably allows the wearer even better control over touch-screens, which may leave you looking for excuses to pop them on even when the weather warms up.

TouchTec gloves come in a variety of styles, from simple black leather driving gloves to radical hand-woven checkerboard patterns. Each features soft cashmere lining and hand-sewn detailing, making the gloves a stylish and one-of-a-kind treasure.

Gaspar, whose line has been featured in major motion pictures such as “3:10 To Yuma” and “The Changeling,” is a third generation master glove maker who uses traditional techniques like table cutting to produce high-quality gloves. The company was originally started in 1885 by her grandfather in Hungary and has since remained family run. Gaspar’s gloves have also been featured in InStyle, Vogue and Glamour magazines as well as at New York’s Spring 2010 Fashion Week.

The gloves, which are available in both men’s and women’s styles, range in price from $225 to approximately $300 and are worth every pretty penny.
