Helly Hansen is a Norwegian brand famous for skiing, sailing and outdoor apparel. It was founded by Helly Juan Hansen, a sea captain, who spent years looking for a perfect way to make clothes waterproof. He wanted to stay dry while sailing across the sea. After many years he discovered that linseed oil could be used to make fabric waterproof. This discovery marked the beginning of the brand, which is still here for us 141 years later.
On the way up
In 1877 Helly Hansen and his wife decided to open a factory manufacturing waterproof clothes for fishermen and sailors. Over just one year they sold 2000 products with linseed oil. The clients were over the moon, because the apparel offered effective protection from wind and other elements, and kept them dry even on the open water. The ultimate proof of success was the award granted at the World Expo in Paris. This is when each country had the opportunity to present their scientific, cultural and technological accomplishments. With time, the brand expanded its portfolio to include footwear and accessories. The company seat was moved from a small town of Moss to Oslo, where the board of the company still has its office.
