IN THE SPOTLIGHT

 

About Us

40 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.
 
In 1986, the first 4811 Original Rise thong was designed in NYC by Gale Epstein, Hanky Panky’s Creative Director. Since then, the 4811 and its younger sister, the 4911 Low Rise thong, have become classics. Many women wear these styles exclusively and wouldn’t dream of wearing any other undies.
 
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.
 
Materials and Construction

 
The World’s Most Comfortable Thong® starts with the best materials. 100% of the fabrics and trims used to make our Signature Lace thongs and panties are knitted in the USA. Even the Supima® cotton fibers used to make the lining are grown in the USA. Each thong uses over 30 yards of thread. More thread means more stitches per inch, and more stitches means a more durable, high quality product.
 
Made in the USA

 
Hanky Panky has been manufacturing in the Northeast area of the USA since 1977. Manufacturing locally drastically reduces 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. Manufacturing in the USA and sourcing USA-made components wherever feasible also keeps Americans employed, thus strengthening our economy.
 
Our design studio, showroom, sample room, and administrative offices are based in Manhattan. Our warehouse is in Queens and all products are shipped from there.
