The 10th. commandment of Härkila design is the Härkila style characterised by Scandinavian elegance, simplicity and fit.

Technologies

At Härkila we constantly innovate our products. Our newly introduced body mapping system ensures extra breathability in exposed areas of our clothing (e.g. under the arms), and our H-vent technology ensures high ventilation in our new line of rubber boots. The often complex demands of high tech gear – for instance creating a lightweight mitten that is extremely insulating – requires extraordinary materials or extremely specialized knowledge. This is why we only use the most exquisite materials and why we collaborate with a number of world leading experts within material and technology innovation in clothing, footwear and equipment.
