Icebreaker - Palm Equipment

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.
Way back in 1979, in a small shed in Somerset, Andy Knight whiled away the hours working mostly with fibreglass but with the aim of making better gear to take paddling. From these humble beginnings, Palm Equipment grew into one of the biggest, best and most innovative providers of kayaking gear and apparel and Andy’s work continues on to this day, albeit in a slightly bigger shed, just down the road.
