Nikwax was founded in 1983 by Nick Brown, who loved trekking with his father. With the goal of creating his own waterproof products to protect his clothes and equipment, Brown also aimed to waterproof his gear without weakening them or losing their essential features. The creation of Nick's wax or “Nikwax” marked the beginning of a remarkable success story.
