Bernie Sanders made headlines with his utilitarian outfit worn at the 2021 inaugural ceremony – notably the brown wool mittens he donned. The mittens have caused notable attention on social media with fans demanding to know where these adorable gloves are from.
The gloves were found to be from Jen Ellis, a teacher who makes upcycled mittens from old wool sweaters that are lined with fleece made from recycled plastic bottles. The designer took to social media to tell those inquiring that the mittens are still available to purchase – albeit in different colorways as each one is uniquely hand made.
