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.


to the danish crown

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



A limited line for the discerning and contemporary consumer. Combining magnificent craftsmanship and minimalist luxury with practicality and durability.
