Shackleton have the ultimate range of Nordic Knits and more this season.
In August 1914 the renowned Antarctic explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton embarked on his greatest ever adventure: the Endurance expedition.
With the South Pole having already been reached almost two years earlier, first by the Norwegian Roald Amundsen and then by Captain Scott (Scott of The Antarctic), Shackleton intended to take polar exploration even further.
His plan was to cross the Antarctic continent on foot and ski, with sledges and dogs, from one side to the other: a journey of 1800 miles across the ice which had never previously been attempted.
Famously, Shackleton’s ship The Endurance became trapped, then crushed and finally sunk, by pack ice in the Weddell Sea on the edge of the continent.
The Shackleton Company celebrates the vision of Shackleton and the heroism of his men, with superb quality British-made products including handmade musical instruments, clothing, craft-beers and gifts.
Shackleton knitwear is made in Leicester, our footwear in Northampton, our outerwear in the Midlands, leather goods in Herefordshire, hats in Oxfordshire, our pewter hip flasks in Sheffield, and their beer is brewed in Essex so this is a truly British brand.
Shackleton knitwear oozes quality and you or your man will feel it from the moment you get your hands on it. They also produce fantastic jackets, socks, journals and even beer! Take a look at some of the products available from theshackeltoncompany.com, below:
