Purple gloves can be purchased in Canifis from Barker at his store, Barker's Haberdashery, and are also dropped by Crawling Hands. The gloves come in five different colours; grey, red, yellow, teal, and purple. These gloves are often worn to match certain armour sets, such as gold-trimmed and god armour sets.
Canifis gloves were originally not intended to be tradeable in F2P worlds, but they were due to an error. Jagex decided to keep them tradeable on F2P due to their growing popularity.
Fremennik gloves, which are of the same style as Canifis gloves, can be purchased from the clothes shop in Rellekka. Unlike the Canifis gloves, Fremennik gloves are members-only.
