Established in 2013, håndværk is a small, artisan label that offers a thoughtfully curated collection of high quality everyday essentials made from the finest natural materials and innovative fabrics. We specialize in the classics that form the backbone of a modern and timeless wardrobe.
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 every piece in collaboration with other family-owned workshops who specialize in their craft and share our unwavering commitment to exceptional quality. We celebrate the ‘craftsman’, and proudly share in the understanding that making quality garments is a humble, and tedious endeavor, miles away from the hype of the fashion world.
We produce for the few who are thoughtful when investing in a product and appreciates the rigorous process required for high-quality manufacturing. Our craft elevates your everyday staples.
