Nordisk is a Danish company designing, producing and marketing outdoor equipment for both extreme performance and leisure use. The aesthetics of Nordisk is rooted in the Scandinavian design tradition, and every tent, sleeping bag, mat and bag is simple yet functional, made from cutting edge innovative and technical materials. Nordisk has more than 100 years of experience and more than 1000 years of proud Nordic legacy.
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.
