Tondeo hairdressers gloves

Some interesting looking hairdresser's gloves - anyone any experience of these? I've seen this brand occasionally on Rakuten (Japanese e-shopping front) but till now I've never seen them listed in Western supply circles:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/183916907062

According to the packet they're made in Austria, which would suggest a Semperit product - like the Matador dark brown hairdresser glove, which I used to adore, but which now has a nasty synthetic coating on the inside (which ruins the smoothness). Alas in recent years the Matador glove has also somehow also lost its suppleness, maybe made thicker and more chlorinated outside so as to provide greater chemical resistance? Another brand I should have bought a few boxes of back in the nineties, had I only known. :-(

Tondeo seem to sell a glove that looks remarkably like the Matador - maybe they just have 'em made and branded differently. But these particular Tondeo gloves look more like "golden" surgical gloves - and I really hope they won't have any inner coating, just lovely smooth rubber inside if I'm lucky! #

I will of course report back when they arrive...
