The Alexandrine gloves in butter cream coloured deer leather are as rare as a treasure can be. Alexandrine was the wife of King Christian X, whom owned the royal deer herd during the 1930’s where RHANDERS were trusted with crafting gloves and accessories from the precious leather for the royal house hold.
Some of leather was hidden and kept for a special occasion, and in 2023, the leather was rediscovered and made into gloves and accessories according to the traditional craftsmanship principles in our atelier in Denmark.
You can easily wear the gloves, but you might also treat them as a piece of art and cultural history.
