Carhartt, America's premium work wear brand since 1889, today
announced the selection of Gordini® USA, a leading outdoor manufacturer of all purpose utility gloves and
patented technologies as its partner to launch the fall 2011 glove collection.

“Like Carhartt, Gordini is a family-owned company that brings a rich history of quality products and
patented technologies to the table, like Carhartt's new seamless wet grip glove technology, C-GRIP™” said
Rick Fecowicz, director of licensing at Carhartt. “The new Carhartt glove collection is guaranteed to have a
glove for every industry professional backed by a Carhartt promise to offer the highest standard in
protection and comfort.”

The Carhartt glove collection will include 19 new styles to serve a variety of workers in many industries
including construction and manufacturing along with farmers, ranchers and outdoor enthusiasts. The
initial collection will include the High Dexterity Series, Work and Garden Series, Fleece Series and C-GRIPâ„¢
Series, all available in a variety of sizes, colors and durable fabrics for men and women. Carhartt's glove
collection will be available to the public through select Carhartt retailers and on for fall 2011.

“This season, we'd like to place an added focus on C-Grip™, Carhartt's new hand wear technology that is
very durable and functional and exceeds expectations with respect to how long it lasts on the job site,”
said Dave Gellis, vice president at Gordini USA. “It made perfect sense to incorporate this unique and very
work functional molded palm technology into the Carhartt glove collection since the brand is already
legendary for its offering of durable and rugged apparel. This technology is perfect for light to heavy-duty
industries including all purpose utility, lawn and garden, mechanic trades, masonry, materials handling
and heavy-duty construction,” Gellis further adds.
