Helly Hansen history
Helly Hanssen was created in 1877 by sea captain Helly Juell Hansen. Norwegian weather elements. Helly and his wife got to work with that and together created ultra-modern waterproof clothing for workers at sea. The innovative couple worked from their basement and soon Helly Hansen became a major player in the clothing industry.
It quickly became a Norwegian industrial adventure. In a short time, Helly Hansen increased production, built and bought factories throughout and expanded the range. In time, Helly Hansen has made everything from agricultural products to life jackets, carpets, cork and life jackets. Helly Hansen has been able to tackle many changes in the world and set up new industries. But the common thread was always a thing of the past in the cold and wet climate in Norway.
The clothing that Helly Hansen has grown through consists mainly of premium work clothing, technical all-weather clothing and ski clothing. It is not without reason that we are so happy to offer Helly Hansen. From inventing the very first waterproof fabric 140 years ago, to the first fleece fabric in the 1960s. Helly Hansen has decades of experience creating the best all-weather apparel. We are therefore very satisfied with HH in our webshop.
