Handvaerk is out to carve an upscale niche in the high-end underwear category.
Launched via an e-commerce site in October, the New York-based company was founded by the husband-and-wife team of Esteban Saba and Petra Brichnacova, who originally hail from Lima, Peru and Prague, Czech Republic, respectively. Their international backgrounds inform the sophisticated, understated approach to design and the meticulous attention to detail that are the hallmarks of Handvaerk, which means “hand-crafted and artisanal” in Danish.
