The Alexandrine Jacket in butter cream coloured deer leather is 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, bags and a special robe jacket according to the traditional craftsmanship principles in our atelier in Denmark.
The Alexandrine Jacket will be tailormade especially to your measurements and be one of a kind piece of art.
