Icebreaker - Edelrid

Icebreaker started in New Zealand in 1994 and has grown steadily throughout the world ever since. This luxurious and much sought after clothing brand was conceived and designed with a philosophy of sustainability; using natural fibres, and maintaining strict environmental and social ethics. Paying close attention to animal welfare, they provide natural, technical, outdoor products as an alternative to synthetic clothing.
EDELRID was founded by Julius EDELmann and Carl RIDder in 1863. At first, the company made braids and cords. The faces might have changed over the years but EDELRID remains an innovative and creative company to this day. In 1953 EDELRID invented the kernmantel rope and revolutionised the world of climbing. 11 years later, EDELRID produced a rope capable of withstanding multiple falls – the forerunner of the modern dynamic climbing rope. Climbing has never looked back since.
