In 1977, designer Gale Epstein created a hand-made lingerie set for her friend 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. Each garment is made from the finest fabrics, creating supple collections season after season. Hanky Panky panties are constructed with the best methods available. 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.
