History

ANKY A/S, a subsidiary of BHH (Bertelsen Holding Herning A/S), is a family-owned company that has always focused on manufacturing underwear.

The key words are uncompromising high quality. This applies to the materials we use, the fit of our products and our cooperation with customers and suppliers.

ANKY focuses on pure products. Therefore, ANKY was awarded the EU Ecolabel in 2001 and the Nordic Ecolabel in 2010.

ANKY was founded in 1916 by Andreas Bertelsen.

 He was originally a carpenter.

In 1916, he purchased a plot of land on the countryside, where the factory is still located today. Here, he built a small house for his family and together with his wife Mine and their five children, he started producing wool underwear.

The production and sales were based on shearing the sheep that grazed on their 1 hectare plot of land. The wool was then washed and later spun into yarn on the spinning wheel. It was then knit and sewn, after which Andreas walked around to farms in Jutland to sell the products.
