More about Carl Friedrik
We are challenging the outdated practices that characterise the luxury industry. By selling direct-to-consumer, embracing sustainable materials and rejecting seasonal fashion, we are better positioned to serve our customer: the modern professional.

Intelligent design is a crucial part of our ethos. Everyday accessories should be functional and a joy to use — so form always follows function in our creative process.

Accessories must also meet the demands of modern living. So we only collaborate with the finest materials and craftsmen. The result: products that last a lifetime.
