Over 30 years ago, in 1977, designer Gale Epstein created a hand-made lingerie set for her friend, Lida Orzeck, crafted out of embroidered handkerchiefs. The original designs wowed retailers and industry experts and were the inspiration for the company name, Hanky Panky.
With the inception of the hanky set in the seventies to the thongs of today, Hanky Panky continues to influence trends in lingerie and sleepwear. We pride ourselves on providing brilliant solutions for fashion fit issues by remaining dedicated to innovative design, comfort, quality, and US production.
Each garment is made from the finest fabrics, creating supple collections season after season. Blending traditional with modern glam looks, Hanky Panky regularly appears in magazines and is a fashion favorite of countless celebrities.
A Do Good Brand
Hanky Panky has been manufacturing in the Northeast area of the USA since 1977. This saves time, fuel, and shipping costs, drastically reducing the generation of CO2. It also allows us to monitor both the quality of our products in the factories and the working conditions. 100% of the fabrics and trims used to make the Signature Lace styles are knitted in the USA. Even the Supima® cotton fibers used to make the lining are grown in the USA. Supima® cotton has a smaller environmental impact than foreign-grown cottons. According to Supima.org, “The implementations of new technologies allow U.S. cotton producers to minimize the impact on the environment by using less water, land and energy.”
Packaging concepts are executed with 100% recycled paper and board and are conceived as keepsake items for an extended life. Hanky Panky strives to make packaging and shipping materials easily recyclable.
Instead of water coolers with plastic bottles, Hanky Panky installed filters to purify NYC tap water, and each employee is provided with a BPA-free reusable water cup.
Instead of paper towels, employees are encouraged to each keep their own reusable towel.
