Riina Õun and Leather Glove Making Workshop
Riina started her brand, Riina O, five years ago choosing to concentrate on one product group - luxurious leather gloves.
We asked Riina the inspiration behind starting this new short course and she said,
“Recently I have noticed that the craft of hand making gloves is on the verge of extinction, which is why I have started teaching a glove making workshop, to carry on the traditional skills.”
