Rooted in the place where style meets simplicity, SKAGEN is a lifestyle brand inspired by the contemporary Danish design movement. Quality and a sense for functionality are the hallmarks of modern Danish design and these characteristics define what we do. Our clean and elegant designs are infused with warmth and character — making them unmistakably inviting and unique. Clearly SKAGEN.
Our source of inspiration flows from the seaside village of Skagen, Denmark. Life in this old fishing port, where the North and Baltic Seas meet, has hardly changed over the centuries. This continuity influences our craft, our tradition, our culture, and our products.
Founded in 1989, SKAGEN Denmark has distributors in more than 80 countries worldwide and a global eCommerce presence on www.skagen.com. Our lifestyle collections include watches, jewelry, leather goods, gifts, and home accessories.
Functional and minimalist in form, the products we offer reflect our high regard for the principles of contemporary Danish design. Our straight, elegant watches are conceived and constructed to accompany their wearers for the rest of their lives. Our bags and leather goods, featuring clear lines and soft materials, should satisfy daily requirements. Our jewelry designs, featuring simple shapes and soft curves, take their inspiration from the Grenen shoreline and Skagen’s two seas. Our products stand for quality, and each in its own way demands and promotes our aim of delivering the best design to people.
Skagen is committed to ethical and responsible conduct in all of our operations and respect for the rights of all human beings. We expect our business partners to share this sense of commitment. We strive to ensure that human rights are upheld for all workers involved in our supply chain, and that everyone experiences safe, fair and non-discriminatory working conditions.
Here at Skagen, we are aware of our environmental responsibility in every sector of our business. We understand that before we can improve our carbon footprint, we must first understand what our CO2 balance looks like. For this reason, we take things one step further and closely monitor the materials we use, the factories we employ, the energy we consume and the initiatives we implement. Before realizing a new idea, we try to find a more environmentally friendly version of the idea, and we don’t plan on stopping those efforts anytime soon.
Global growth no longer refers only to our sales goals; it’s an opportunity to sustain (and even improve) the earth’s health. Because let’s face it: We owe every penny of our business to the earth we live on.
