Nordisk is a Danish company specializing in equipment for passionate outdoor enthusiasts. The company can look back on over 100 years of tradition. Founded in 1901 as Nordisk Fjer (Northern Feather), it was renamed Caravan in the 1970s before finally becoming Nordisk in 1991. Throughout its history, the company has retained its Scandinavian values of function, design, competitive edge and the will to achieve.
Nordisk has been a brand at the outdoor scene for many years – as long as there has been a scene, actually.
Founded in 1901 Northern Feather was the first Danish company to focus 100% on down and feathers. From simple trading to development of own products like duvets, quilts and pillows Northern Feather developed into one of the leading world wide players within the down and feather business.
In 1967 Nordisk Freizeit was founded as a subsidiary of Northern Feather focusing on the growing outdoor market. During the 70’s and 80’s Nordisk played a key role in building the still new European outdoor sector, through own companies in Germany, Denmark, Sweden and the UK and under the brand name Caravan.In the years to come Nordisk and Caravan became major players in the business, being recognized for its innovative and very fashionable products.
In 1991 we changed our brand name to Nordisk, being true to our story and heritage. Nordisk is still a European brand, but the last few years we have also expanded beyond the European continent, and now you will also find Nordisk products in faraway countries such as Japan and Korea.
