A BRITISH BRAND. A BRUTAL NORWEGIAN HERITAGE
Jöttnar was born in Arctic Norway and is the creation of two former Royal Marine commandos and lifelong mountaineers, climbers and skiers.
We are Tommy and Steve. As commandos, we specialised in mountain and extreme cold weather warfare, training in the high Arctic circle. We were in the Norwegian mountains during a fierce Arctic winter when inspiration took hold: the development of technical outdoor clothing that would protect against the raging brutality around us, whilst capturing the purity and elegance of the Scandinavian landscape.
So we founded Jöttnar.
Jöttnar have a number of professional athletes as ambassadors for their products and one of those is skier Alison Thacker. We have made two films for Alison and her company OffPiste Performance and hence Jöttnar getting in touch when they wanted a film that told their story. The film was made up entirely of stock footage, some of it suppled by Jöttnar and the majority of it from our own library. Tommy booked himself into a studio for the voice over – and still hates listening to his own voice!
