Icebreaker was created by a 24-year-old Jeremy Moon. His aim was to provide garments for outdoor adventures with less reliance on petrochemical fibers, providing a more sustainable future for us - and the planet. But back then, synthetics were king, so convincing people was going to be far from easy. In 1996, the world’s first natural layering system is officially born. Merino’s excellent warmth to weight ratio and low bulk inspires the first two weight natural layering system. Today, more than 20 years of commitment have been oriented towards building an ethical and sustainable business that offers durable and quality products.
Icebreaker is also a movement toward a more natural lifestyle. It's removing unnecessary plastic from performance apparel: 95% of the fibers used in its collections are merino and plant-based. And it doesn't stop there, as it continues to evolve with nature!
Our 100% merino clothing provides natural warmth, exceptional softness and is naturally odor resistant. A simple, effective and ingenious material, because nature doesn't test its solutions in the lab!View products
