History of Norrøna
Norrøna dates back to 1929 where a Jørgen Jørgensen, an outdoor enthusiast began his search for quality outdoor apparel equipment for the harsh Norway landscapes. He ventured into the production of equipment at the J.J Norrøna Sporting goods and leather factory.
Since then, the company has been passed through generations of explorers who continue to push the limits in product development. Every CEO carries in their blood, the spirit and love for the outdoors. Therefore, each product is designed and tested according to user experience.

What Do I Need To Know About The Material?
Each product material is selected with user experience and function in mind. Within the three years of product creation, they ensure that they engineer their apparel and equipment to fulfil user needs while maintaining a minimalistic design.
The materials used are friendly to the skin, and environment, and are also sourced ethically. Their products are made of microfiber, recycled fibres to reduce their carbon footprint, and organic cotton produced according to required standards. For animal products such as wool, down and leather, they work with suppliers that ensure the humane treatment of animals.
In their commitment to environmental protection, they have faced out all long-chain fluorocarbons in their apparel and equipment. They are also currently heavily invested in research to phase out short-chain fluorocarbon by developing durable and functional alternatives.
