Gunte is a kind of glove that the Japanese love very much, which is widely and effectively used in people's daily lives. The gunte is usually white, flexible, and very firm and cheap. While working, gunte is a good labour protection equipment to prevent cuts and bruises.
The name "gunte" is an abbreviation for "gunyou tebukuro=military glove", it was originally a glove used by military soldiers.
The reason for using such a name is just because of its origin. It is said that during the Koka era and Ansei era at the end of the Edo period, when the modern armed training was carried out, in order to prevent the soldiers from touching the rifle by hand so as to the barrel is rusted, such gloves were widely used in the army.
What do you think? Because it is very warm when wearing gunte, such gloves are also the treasure in autumn and winter. Next time I want to tell you about the types of gunte. Thank you for reading this time. Stay tuned for the next time.
