We are friends. We are hunters
Our respect and love for nature and the fair pursuit of game is our common bond. A few years ago, three of the founders of Ravnø (Torbjørn, Olav and Marek) were sitting in a mountain cabin and complaining about how the quality of hunting garments has fallen, particularly in comparison to what was available 30 years ago. Back in the day, when gear was made in Europe and not as a mass produced capitalist idea of margins and costs.
So we decided to do something about it.
Ravnø gear is made in Europe. We have chosen the best technical textiles in the world, manufactured by Schöeller Elite Textiles in Switzerland and Stotz Textiles Switzerland. Schöeller is one of the founding members of the Bluesign™ system -recognized as the leading standard for sustainable manufacture of textiles. We don’t use PFC or UV enhancers. We use YKK zippers, – velcro, buttons and bungee cords from Wasa Sweden. We manufacture in Poland at Tekosöm Sverige AB, a Gore Gold Standard factory. Thats why we can with confidence put a 10 year manufacturing warranty on our garments.
Our business is a Non-Retail model, we have taken the margins from retail and used them directly on the garments. Through this we strive to achieve a higher investment in the garment itself so that you, as a hunter, get the benefit of the investment you make in the garments. We hope you like what we are doing, we are after all people who share the same passion as you do. Thats why we like to say, Ravnø – made by friends.
