Materials & Craftsmanship


Part of the HANRO legacy includes the promises of quality and luxury through the highest quality materials sourced and designed with the utmost attention to detail, state-of-the-art production processes, and a legacy of timeless and classic style.

More than a century’s worth of experience in developing exceptional products is channelled into our creations. HANRO stands for passion for products and an eye for detail. Our designers create their designs still by hand, furnishing imaginative sketches and draping them attentively on custom-made mannequins. In every detail, they look for something special and unique. Our products embody elegance and aesthetics in every fibre.

HANRO products delight people all around the world with their exclusive lace and embroidery. It takes creativity, diligence, patience and a passion for the detail to develop filigree lace or opulent embroidery. Stylish details such as the finest St. Gallen embroidery or French Leavers lace are elaborately hand-crafted by our own designers in co-operation with renowned European manufacturers. They add that extra special something in unmistakable HANRO style to our underwear designs.

Those who wear a HANRO garment for the first time are surprised how soft the cotton feels, how airy and light the wool is, and how delicate the silk mixes are. For us, true luxury means feeling completely at home in your own skin. Fabrics must be of the very highest quality and origin to meet this demand, so the process begins back with the selection of raw materials. As an expert in the field of natural fibres, we only processes hand-picked, long-staple quality cottons such as Pima cotton or Egyptian Giza cotton, as well as top quality Merino wool, finest silk and the very best Swiss cotton yarns and threads.These are what make the quality of our products so unique.

Thanks to our state-of-the-art production processes, the fabrics we create are unique. Seamless and hemless finishes, soft mercerisation and the very closest stitching requirements are just a few of our innovations, which we are constantly working to develop further. All ranges are certified in accordance with Öko-Tex standard 100 and bear the ‘Textiles Vertrauen’ seal of approval.

Each single product reflects our passion for our work, our technological expertise, and our precision in craftsmanship. Combined, the many steps along the painstaking processing path result in unique and timelessly elegant garments of incomparable quality – from us, for you – for 130 years!
