Traditional Craftsmanship and Contemporary Design

The Thomas Riemer gloves are designed in Vienna and manufactured in a highly specialised workshop in Hungary, using traditional techniques, some old machines and tools and the rare skills of twenty glove makers with over 40 years of experience. What makes the gloves truly unique is the mixture of superlative materials, the strive for perfect fit and the manufacturing precision.

Thomas Riemer table cut gloves

Table Cut

All gloves are table cut by hand, one pair at a time. The cutters prepare the leather 24 hours before by soaking and stretching it. The utmost attention is paid to the leather’s quality, grain and stretching properties. The cutter’s skills, knowledge and touch are essential in manufacturing a pair of well fitting handmade gloves of exceptional beauty.

Hand Sewn

The cut and fitted leather pieces for each pair of gloves are passed on to the stitchers. These artisans can sew leather by hand, with outstanding mastery and precision, without any prior signing or piercing to guide their stitches. An experienced seamstress can make only three pairs of entirely hand stitched gloves in a working day.

 

Second Generation of Glove Makers

 Thomas Riemer comes from a traditional Austrian family of glove manufacturers, now at its second generation. While his father created a successful Austrian sports glove brand, Thomas chose to turn ladies and gentlemen's dress gloves made according to centuries old methods into modern, comfortable and remarkable accessories.
