About Us

Our Story

Simple Design for a Better Life

Our brand celebrates Denmark and the seaside village of Skagen, where the North and Baltic Sea meet.  Quality and a sense of purpose are hallmarks of modern Danish design.  Our mission is to combine the inspiration of the Danish design perspective with contemporary innovation.  We create functional, purposeful, quality products that offer an alternative from a complex world and the ability to connect to simple pleasures.


Founded in 1989, Skagen products can be found in 80 countries worldwide and online at  Our offerings include watches, jewelry, leather accessories, gifts and home goods.


Our Products

Functional and minimalist in form, the products we offer reflect our high regard for the principles of contemporary Danish design. Our streamlined timepieces are conceived—and constructed—to last. Our bags and leather goods, with their clean lines and supple materials, are made with everyday needs in mind. Our jewelry designs, featuring simple shapes and soft curves, take their cue from Skagen’s two seas and the Grenen shoreline. Our products speak to quality, and each in its own way furthers our aim of delivering the best design to the most people.


Skagen is committed to ethical and responsible conduct in all of our operations and respect for the rights of all individuals. We expect that our business partners will share this commitment. We strive to ensure that human rights are upheld for all workers involved in our supply chain, and that individuals experience safe, fair and non-discriminatory working conditions.

At Skagen, environmental responsibility lives in every corner of our business. We understand that before we can affect our carbon footprint, we must first understand what our footprint is. That’s why we go the extra mile to monitor closely the materials we use, the factories we employ, the energy we consume and the initiatives we implement. New ideas are developed constantly to include a more environmentally friendly version of the idea before it, and we don’t plan on stopping this exercise anytime soon.

Global growth no longer refers only to our sales goals; it’s an opportunity to sustain (and even augment) the earth’s health. Because let’s face it: We owe every penny of our business to the earth we occupy.
