"Garphyttan is who I am, how I live, and what I believe in!"

"Garphyttan is who I am, how I live, and what I believe in!"

Why did you start Garphyttan?

The curiosity to take on the challenge of creating a versatile, multifunctional system of clothing and gear that inspires and makes it a little easier to get outdoors, without having to change clothes and embrace a wider range of outdoor activities beyond just hiking. Garphyttan is who I am, how I live, and what I believe in!

What is important to you when it comes to the development of clothing?

For me, clothing is not primarily about style and appearance. Function and fit are more important. The clothing must be comfortable, durable, and have practical solutions well-suited for life in nature. I want to create clothing to feel proud of and that you can confidently know will withstand all the challenges you may face.

Who are Garphyttan's clothes for?

It's easy to think that Garphyttan's clothes are only for the most adventurous or the most handy. That's not true. Our clothes are for everyone! We create clothes that blur the boundaries between home, nature, work, and leisure, simply intertwining all aspects of life, regardless of the situation.

What do you always have with you when you're out?

A layered clothing system, including hands, feet, and my head, no matter where I go or what I do, and my stainless steel knife and water bottle!
