Regular hand washing and changing plastic gloves is the be-all and end-all for many waiters and waitresses in restaurants, cafés, bars and inns. Anyone who has ever waited tables knows very well that this is not always possible. Several orders in a row, bringing food and drinks to the table and talking briefly with guests in between - on busy days, service staff have their hands full.
ElephantSkin gloves are designed to help service workers in their day-to-day work.
Where can gloves be used in restaurants?
Restaurants offer a range of venues where elegant fabric gloves can be used:
Washing hands regularly can be a real challenge for waiters and waitresses - after all, they are masters of multitasking and perform many tasks within a short period of time. To still feel safe and convey cleanliness to the guest, they like to use plastic gloves. However, if plastic gloves are not changed regularly, this leads to cross-contamination. Furthermore, plastic gloves irritate the skin when used continuously, which leads to skin irritation.
Therefore, the use of ElephantSkin gloves is recommended here: These are enhanced with an antibacterial and antiviral technology that provides a physical barrier towards harmful viruses and bacteria - both inside and outside the glove. The material mix of organic cotton and elastane offers a perfect fit and the highest wearing comfort.
Gloves while setting the table
Guests expect their cutlery and tableware to be of the utmost cleanliness. After all, their food and they themselves also come into contact with these.
Thus, when setting the table, the first rule is not to touch the dishes and cutlery directly, and certainly not to leave fingerprints.
Our gloves make it easier for waiters and waitresses to do their job: ElephantSkin gloves prevent the spread of germs when setting the table and avoid direct contact between skin and dishes/cutlery.
Gloves at the bar
For use at the bar, ElephantSkin gloves offer several advantages: On the one hand, the same pair of gloves can be used for hours during a bar shift without spreading germs among a large number of people and without producing a mountain of plastic waste every day. On the other hand, the gloves offer a unique branding opportunity at the bar and in service, for example for beverage brands or the hosts themselves.
Branding - Opportunity
ElephantSkin gloves can be custom branded as desired, communicating your own brand. Whether it is an established brand or a new brand. Beverage brands can approach restaurants to launch a new beverage, for example. Alternatively, restaurant owners can ask their suppliers whether they would be interested in sponsoring a new beverage.
Gloves for sommeliers
Wine waiters advise restaurant operators, guests and businesses and stand out as "pleasure specialists" through excellent advice. Appearance also plays an important role: wine waiters attach great importance to a well-groomed appearance, as they want to present (expensive) wines in the best possible light. Through their presentation, they not only sell wine, but also convince people of their expertise.
For presenting wines and maintaining hygiene, our elegant ElephantSkin Classic gloves are the perfect choice, available in three different colors.
Buffet operation, salad bar & counter service
Large buffets are not only a good way to "serve" many guests at the same time, but also the perfect breeding ground for bacteria and viruses. Many people in lines and many tongs and utensils touched by numerous visitors and employees. In order to work hygienically here, employees* could be equipped with gloves. If this involves event catering, for example, branded gloves could be used for both employees and guests.
Our service heroes, who work at counter services and are constantly in contact with customers, should not be forgotten. Here, too, the use of ElephantSkin gloves could make sense and also give the counter service a high-quality appearance.
Last but not least: food delivery services that supply countless households with food and drinks. Delivery service employees often work under difficult working conditions: Touching dozens of doors, face-to-face contact with customers while delivering meals, accepting tips, cold fingers while riding motorcycles or bicycles in the winter, and making deliveries in all kinds of weather.
The opportunity for employers
As an employer, this is an opportunity to provide hygiene to the customer in the experience and equally make the working conditions of the employees more pleasant. ElephantSkin gloves help limit smear infections. They allow sweat and itch free work and also provide a warming layer in the cold seasons. For a better grip while cycling, we recommend ElephantSkin Fitness Gloves.

ElephantSkin gloves are made from sustainable and recycled materials to minimize their carbon footprint. This makes them a sustainable, as well as comfortable and stylish solution for your employees* hands. The fabric is soft on the skin and also allows them to breathe underneath.
The gloves are treated with antiviral and antibacterial technology - that is, the surface works efficiently to reduce bacteria and germs. ElephantSkin gloves are reusable. After each use, they can be washed up to 30 times without losing their effectiveness.
As an employer, ElephantSkin gloves are a great opportunity to offer your employees comfort at work - so that the work is not only enjoyable for them, but also for their hands.
