handvaerk, a New York based luxury basics apparel brand, launched its debut collection exclusively online at www.handvaerk.com. The collection features a curated selection of men’s and women’s luxury wardrobe basics, including t-shirts, polos, henleys, tank tops, underwear and other classic everyday pieces. Each item is handcrafted in small production runs in family-owned and operated workshops.
“We are thrilled to bring handvaerk’s line of men and women luxury essentials to the U.S. market,” said Esteban Saba, Co-Founder and CEO of handvaerk. “More than a statement of our devotion to the highest standards of craftsmanship and quality, handvaerk offers consumers basics that have thoughtful design and premium materials sourced from around the world.”
handvaerk was conceptualized by husband and wife team Esteban Saba and Petra Brichnacova as an artisanal collection of wardrobe basics made from the highest quality materials. Inspired by the Danish word handvaerk, meaning artisanal and handcrafted, the brand offers a line with a pure aesthetic and takes its cues from mid century modern design. Each product has been designed for ultimate comfort, which is due to the fabric’s ultimate softness, meticulous tailoring and an unparalleled emphasis on every single sartorial detail.
The brand offers a product made with distinct fabrics derived from the highest-grade Pima cotton from the northern coastal valley in Peru, Mongolian cashmere and merino wool from Scotland. All items are hand made or hand finished to maintain the artistry and grace that are inherent in high-quality craftsmanship.
