Classic elegant leather gloves, redefined by Ines


The legacy of Ines

The return of glamorous leather gloves

I love to design gloves, I love to enhance elegance.


♰ Ines van den Born
Founder & gloves designer and equal rights activist.

Who was this quirky, smart and a little naughty but always elegant lady? 


I was born and raised in an elegant time - a time that makes you reminisce of days when people always wore leather gloves in Le Métro de Paris, or strolling around the center of Amsterdam or Florence on Sunday afternoons.


Let's bring back elegance, one glove at a time.

My first design? I just bought a pair of gloves and cut off the fingers.

Elegance is to stay true to yourself and treat others as you want to be treated.

The joy and pleasure of wearing my own gloves is incredible. That feeling of sensuality and elegance...This is what I want to share with my customers too.


One of the greatest perks of working with amazing artists, talents and visionaries is the thrill to be able to play a small part in helping their vision come alive.

One day in the late 1990s, my mother said to me:
"I am going to start an online shop for fancy leather gloves and you'll take the pictures!"

At that time I (Bob, son of Ines) studied photography at the School of Arts in Amsterdam and on this day I still take all images of our gloves in the studio and on location.

For years I worked as a location scout for television and film, but I was always involved in my mothers company.
About 7 years ago Ines Gloves grew so big, I joined my mom on a daily basis.

I live in Amsterdam with my daughter Anna and my office/studio is the same as Ines used to work in.
And thats really inspiring surrounded by all the images, books, hides, prototypes, swatches, etc. that she gathered around her all those years.

I learned a lot from her about chocolate, leather, girlfriends, men, gloves, MM's, elegance and running a passionate business.

Even though I feel sad about her passing, its a great feeling of pride that I can keep continuing the legacy of a special human-being who, brought back those classic gloves, inspired and made thousands of people happy all around the world.

I'll move on with the Ines Gloves keeping her spirit alive.
There are a lot of stories to tell and insights to give.
And I'll make sure that you can keep on enjoying Ines' elegant leather gloves that fit like a second skin.

Let's make the world a little more beautiful.

Greetings from Amsterdam,

Bob, son of Ines
