About Us

Why Marigold?

For a brighter clean - since we made the first rubber gloves in 1947, we've been providing the performance and protection you need to tackle the toughest jobs. Marigold transforms the dullest chore into one with a sense of purpose, pride and deep satisfaction.

We call it the Marigold cleaning glow.

In 1950 we launched the first Marigold latex rubber gloves developed exclusively for washing up, changing the way we protect our hands whilst cleaning from then on.

To this day, Marigold remains the No.1 Glove Brand in the UK*.

Classed as a luxury item in 1947 when they were first developed in the UK, Marigold Gloves were originally sold only in one colour (orange). While now classed as a household staple rather than a luxury item, Marigold has remained the UK's number one glove*, guaranteeing premium protection for your hands.

Marigold now has a glove for every occasion, whether you’re cooking, cleaning, DIY-ing or just generally doing dirty jobs your hands will be happy.

The Future

Marigold is committed to improving the sustainability of the brand, so in 2020 we teamed up with TerraCycle® to launch the UK's first recycling solution for BOTH durable and disposable gloves. You can read more about our work with TerraCycle® here
