Now introducing the limited line, RHANDERS. Intrinsically timeless, transcending seasons, yet completely modern.


Founded in 1811

Randers handskefabrik

While Napoleon Bonaparte was facing his last battles at war, the initiative to build a glove factory in Randers, Denmark – known for its fine glove-making – was taken by O.C. Kellermann. He was a merchant with international experience, and so he gathered a group of skilled glove cutters and tanners from France and founded Randers Handskefabrik with 20 craftsmen.

Crafting 20 pairs a day

The seamstresses were trained for at least a year before they could master the delicate full piqué technique. This overlapping technique is commanded in millimetres, one stitch at a time, without being able to see the stitching on the other side. Therefore, also called glove blind-stitching. The technique is still used today, only mastered by a few in the world.

Purveyor

to the danish crown

Following hundreds of years of gloving kings, queens and zarinas, Randers Handsker was appointed purveyor to the royal danish court
