For lovers of greasy and messy food, the Italian Design Agency has created a product to enable them to satisfy their appetites on the go. The latex finger covers were designed by Francesco Musci. The product comes in pack of five colorful tips, which can be put on before eating to protect the diner from sticky fingers.


The fingertips are incredibly thin to enable the consumer to still enjoy the texture of the food, while protecting their skin from oily residue or staining. Musci envisions the thin plastic covers being provided with messy, colored or smelly foods, such as crisps or lobsters. How else could consumers be protected against messy foods on the go?
