Rihanna wore gloves made by Pécsi Gloves International (PGI) at the 2023 Super Bowl halftime show, according to a Facebook post by the Pécs-Baranya Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

The glove manufacturer made several variations for Rihanna, who opted for the fiery red soft lambskin ones.

According to the chamber, this is not the first time Rihanna has worn the company's product, and PGI often collaborates with some of the biggest stars in America.

Designer Dorothy Gaspar played a major role in sparking overseas interest in the gloves made in Pécs. Gaspar was born in Hungary, into a family which had a significant background in glove manufacturing. After emigrating to the United States in the 1980s, she made herself a career, becoming popular among celebrities, and putting PGI products on the hands of many stars.

The post notes that PGI is not well known to the Hungarian public, although its products are worn by many people inside and outside the country. In Hungary, the public knows the manufacturer as its own brand, Karma Pécsi Kesztyű.
