"Made from dragon hide or similar. Protect your hands from smelly compost and vicious plants."
Protective gloves are gloves that protects the wearer's hands. They are made of dragon hide or similar materials, and are useful in Herbology for handling odorous compost or vicious plants.[1] Protective gloves are listed in the first year Shopping List as part of the required uniform while attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.[2]


When Harry Potter was ordered to sort out rotten and good flobberworms for potion ingredients as a detention, Severus Snape forbade him from using protective gloves.[3]
