Thomasine is educated as conceptual product designer from
the prestigious Design Academy Eindhoven in the Netherlands.
She was a selected talent in 2007 with her leather gloves
at ITS SIX - International Talent Support in Trieste Italy.
From that moment her career as a glove designer began.
Consumed by inspiration for materials, architecture, nature and an unquenchable desire for something new, Thomasine continuously surprises and delights her clients.
“Everything you ever wanted to know about gloves but never dared to ask. Designer Thomasine Barnekow, a Swede in Paris, amazes with her exquisitly made high-impact creations. The glove world explodes in a myriad of forms and possibilities, showing unexpected verve and vitality: intriguing spirals adorn the cuff, sensual plaits run up the forearm, surprising cuts create futuristic volumes. Contemporary architecture, the geometries of nature, manipulated materials and colour dynamics suggests formal visions, challenges to traditional craftsmanship that profoundly renews the identity and perception of the glove as an accessory.”
“The Swedish designer turns the ubiquitous accessory upside down from her Parisian atelier.”
