Named after the Swedish for ‘arctic fox’, Fjall Raven started life in the early 60s when founder Ake Nordin had been contemplating manufacturing a climbing jacket, but didn’t have the right fabric. With a mountain hike impending, Ake took a tent fabric sample and turned it into the very first Fjallraven jacket. Having turned this piece into a legacy the label is still strong and construction some really great things with their current collection using basic cuts.

Thanks to Oi Polloi for the info.
