In 1877, captain Helly Juell Hansen began making water resistant clothing to survive the severe Norwegian weather conditions. By soaking coarse linen in linseed oil, the materials became waterproof. This innovative way of treating fabrics was a great way to help locals working at sea. Helly Hansen has developed itself to a brand which designs garments for different sports like sailing, skiing and hiking. In the beginning of the 20th century, Helly Hansen also designed casual clothing, which was waterproof as well. Both lines were so succesfull, that the brand is still very relevant nowadays. Technical innovation plays a big role with the Norwegian brand. A lot of professional sailers and skiers, because of the high quality garments.
