After announcing this new partnership on our social media, here you’ll find all about our partner, Härkila.
“Härkila: Trust Your Instinct”
Härkila was founded in 1985 in Västra Götaland in southern Sweden. Today it is present in more than 50 countries and is one of the world’s leading brands in clothing and equipment for the hunting industry, thanks to its constantly innovative design and technology.
In the beginning, Härkila produced quiet and waterproof hunting clothing, but later on, it began to produce other types of clothing, which led to its presence throughout Scandinavia, the British Isles, and continental Europe.
A growing family business
Before becoming a leading brand, Härkila was known as a kennel known for its award-winning hunting dogs.
Today Härkila is a family business growing more and more through new technologies and innovation while keeping the same basis from the beginning: understanding how crucial good equipment is to hunters’ success.
Specialization and innovation are part of the Härkila brand tradition. For thousands of years, hunting has been an integral part of life in the Nordic countries and plays a vital role in the survival of the population, as well as in the conservation of ecosystems and biodiversity.
Härkila has grown into a brand that develops clothing for a wide variety of hunting activities, yet its values remain unchanged: to design clothing that can withstand the variable weather conditions of northern Europe and to enable outdoor enthusiasts to experience the joy of nature.
“We are hunters, we are Härkila”
Härkila’s goal is to offer the best solutions to its community, to make their life better and easier, and for that, every detail is thought out rigorously that years are needed to design a garment.
All the Härkila team, those of production, design, R&D, among others, know about hunting and hunters’ needs and for that reason, they work so hard, so that every day they can answer in the best way to those needs.
The quality of all the products is verified by the ambition of each employee to offer the best clothing for hunting elk, wild boar, etc. Using the best fabrics available and manufacturing in the most experienced factories.
All Härkila’s products are tested on the field and the brand ensures that each product is the best it can be so that waterproofs are waterproof, and jackets like the Härkila Stornoway Shooting Jacket will keep you warm and dry whatever the weather.
