The North Face is one of the world’s most famous outdoor brands. Its history goes back over 50 years and offers products for everyone, from babies to adults. Their slogan “Never Stop Exploring” is an example of their dedication to exploration and adventure.
The North Face was founded in 1968 by Douglas Tompkins and Kenneth “Hap” Klopp in San Francisco, California, after two mountaineers returned from an expedition with a new idea – there should be clothing specifically designed for outdoor use. The garment was originally called The Northeastern Mountain Sports or NEMO Clothing Company until 1978, when Doug changed its name to The North Face because he believed it to be the true north face of Mount Everest (the mountain on Earth that reaches the highest peak in the world). world).
The North Face has evolved from its roots as an outdoor clothing company into a fully-fledged clothing brand. In 1987, The North Face introduced the “Higher End” line of jackets and backpacks for climbers, skiers and mountain guides. A year later in 1988, they introduced their first backpack with a logo – the rest is history!
Today, The North Face offers products such as clothing (including down jackets), shoes, bags and accessories. They also sell leisure clothing such as underwear and sleeping bags under a variety of brands such as TNF black label and the Women’s Collection, which are available at most stores selling clothing designed by the iconic brand. In addition, you can find many collaborations with other brands around the world that produce merchandise inspired by The North Face’s expertise in outdoor clothing.
The latest novelty in the offer of The North Face is the addition of the “Nepal Edition” backpacks to its offer. These backpacks are part of a joint project with the International Medical Corps and Nepalese volunteers who helped thousands of people after the earthquake earlier this year. In total, 75% of the sales of these Nepalese edition backpacks will be donated directly to humanitarian aid in Nepal by the IMC!
