Helly Hansen



From their home in Norway, Helly Hansen has been making professional grade outdoor wear to help protect people from the environment for almost 140 years. It all started in 1877 when sea captain, Helly Juell Hansen found a unique new method of treating his outdoor clothing to stay better protected from the harsh Norwegian elements. His idea was a great success and well received and encouraged Captain Hansen and his wife Margrethe to launch a business producing waterproof, oilskin jackets, trousers. sou’westers and tarpaulins made from coarse linen soaked in linseed oil – The Helly Hansen legend was born!
In August 2017, Helly Hansen launched their own Eyewear collection, created for the global market. The optical collection is inspired by the clothing and is made for active people who like an outdoor and a sporty lifestyle. January 2018 is the launch for the technical sport sunglasses.
