History of Fjallraven
Fjallraven was founded by Ake Nordin in 1960. He developed a backpack that could comfortably hold large amounts of gear. He firmly believed that there must always be an effective solution to problems, and he significantly expanded Fjallraven’s product line between the 60s & 70s. He created some of Fjallraven’s most famous products, including the Greenland Jacket and the Expedition Down Jacket. Fjallraven has Asian production partners in China, South Korea, and South Korea today to make their clothing and gear. This is a long way away from Ake’s basement. They know that the products labelled ‘Made in China’ and ‘Made in Korea’ were once referred to as ‘cheap garbage’. Therefore, they want to change that image and work with their Asian production partners to produce sustainable, high-quality, and toxic-free products. Jake Lah, the owner of the DAC factory in Seoul, stated that the manufacturers they work alongside treat their employees as family.
“If my employees are happy and healthy, we can make money.” It’s not the other way around.
