Baekgaard was established by a young Danish immigrant--Peer Baekgaard-- who came to New York in 1951 with little money and a big dream. Using the strong will and resourcefulness that served him well while fighting in the Danish underground during WWII, he managed to create a unique giftware business.

Peer's enterprising spirit has led to the founding of the Baekgaard line of men's accessories that is famous for it's luxurious quality.

The Baekgaard name continues to stand for stylish, high-quality products to this day.
