Established in New York in 2013, håndværk is a small, artisan label specializing in supremely luxurious pieces with a thoughtfully curated collection of high quality everyday essentials made from the finest natural raw materials and innovative fabrics. The collection is designed to form the foundation of a modern and timeless wardrobe.
The håndværk brand is about a simpler way of life; opting for the very best, without the need to telegraph it to the world. It's about the pride achieved by the craftsman with his honest work and the understanding that making quality garments is a humble and tedious endeavor, miles away from the hype of the fashion world.
We produce for those few who are truly thoughtful when investing in a product, appreciate the rigorous process required for high quality manufacturing, and understand how håndværk is redefining how luxury essentials are made.
Our heritage is grounded in three generations of small-scale family production; a legacy of manufacturing textiles, garments, and luxury products. We hand-make or hand-finish each individual piece in collaboration with other family owned workshops specialized in their craft, who share our unwavering commitment for exceptional quality.
håndværk is the brainchild of a husband and wife team who share a passion for textiles. They set out to create a lifestyle brand grounded on the essence of quality – clean minimal design, the finest natural materials, and time honored quality craftsmanship.
