Covid-19 is at the forefront of everyone’s mind with the effects being felt around the globe and our thoughts go out to everyone who has been affected by the impact of COVID-19. As we carefully monitor the rapidly changing developments regarding coronavirus (COVID-19), we are writing to share the actions Vallerret is taking to protect our community.
One of the most effective mitigation techniques recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) is social distancing. Because our staff at Vallerret already work remotely, we are planning to continue business as usual for as long conditions allow. We are encouraging all remote staff to practice social distancing in their communities to help flatten the curve of Covid-19 cases.
We are in constant communication with our shipping warehouses and will support their business decisions as conditions change. As of now, our shipping warehouses remain open and your orders will continue to be shipped as normal. In Europe, all parcels are being required to be sent by truck instead of planes so if you are waiting for an international order, please be aware there may be delays for countries that are far from our fulfilment centre in the Netherlands.
We encourage our community to take the extra precautions necessary to safeguard your health and the health of those around you. Please refer to your community’s health officials and follow the steps recommended by them. If you need additional resources, please visit the World Health Organization’s website at www.who.int. We can all take steps to minimize the effect this infection has on our communities so we encourage you to be diligent and work to protect those who are more vulnerable during this outbreak.
We will continue to keep you informed as information unfolds. You have our promise that we are doing all we can in this unprecedented situation and we thank you for your continued support and understanding as we work through this together over the coming weeks.
Stay safe and look after each other.

Highlighting women in photography helps change the perceived conception about photographers and what qualities are necessary to be a professional photographer so we are thrilled to be spending this week showcasing some of our favourite photographers from 2020. Let's jump in!

Please note, our gloves are designed to fit snuggly to give you the best camera feel without compromising on warmth. If you prefer a looser fit, please consider to go a size up.
As we learn more and more about gloves we also learn that all hands are different. Some people have long skinny fingers and slim wrists, others have wide hands with short fingers.
Our gloves wont fit all even with the right measurements from the sizing chart – but we try!
For many, the best option will be to go up a size if your measurements are in between sizes.
If you are between sizes or if your hands do not fit into the measurements on our sizing chart, we recommend prioritizing the fit for the girth measurement. The girth is the most important measurement and if the girth size on the glove is too small, you won't be able to fit the glove.
If you’re considering pairing a liner glove with your photography gloves, we recommend choosing the same size liner as photography glove. We designed our liners to be thin and fit inside of our photography gloves so we recommend your normal size in liners. There are two exceptions to this:
Exception #1: If you are at the very end of the ratio size in the sizing chart, e.g. 1 mm from being a size Large, then we advise going up a glove size if you plan to often wear the liner with the gloves.
Exception #2: If your personal preference is to wear fairly loose gloves, then you should also go up a size when adding a liner. We don't recommend this as you will compromise dexterity with loose gloves and our priority is best possible camera feel. But you know best what you like!
House tip: Make sure to choose a liner size that is snug/tight on your hand for the best Fliptech performance when wearing liners and gloves together.
