Made in (CURVE)NY

Hanky Panky

Above: Hanky Panky.

The July 4th Holiday celebrations are quickly approaching and we wanted to highlight a few brands exhibiting at CURVE that are made in the USA: Hanky Panky, Rago, Flora Nikrooz, Dominique Intimate Apparel and Only Hearts. All four also share the distinction of not only being made in ‘Merica! but also here in New York.

You’ll have a chance to see the brands at the next editions of CURVE in New York (July 31 – Aug 2, 2016) and Las Vegas (Aug 15 – 17, 2016). In the mean time, we hope our readers enjoy this snap shot of brands manufactured in the Empire State.

Hanky Panky, booth #623

Above: An inside look at Hanky Panky’s New York City design studio, Queens Cutting & Shipping Plant, and local factories that work together to create the “World’s Most Comfortable Thong®.

Hanky Panky has been manufacturing in the Northeast area of the USA since 1977. Manufacturing locally saves time, fuel, and shipping costs, thus drastically reducing the generation of CO2.

“It also keeps our factories where we can see them, allowing us to monitor both the quality of our products and the working conditions,” says the brand. “The US has many laws in place protecting the health and safety of its workers. Sadly, many other countries where apparel is produced have not yet enacted or enforced laws protecting its manufacturing workers.”
