The North Face was founded in 1964 by the ecologist billionaire Douglas Tompkins and Kenneth Klopp, both passionate hikers and mountaineers. Around the 1970s, the brand began producing equipment for high-altitude sports activities, establishing itself over time as a benchmark in the production of outdoor sportswear. Today, The North Face is among the sportswear brands to collaborate with luxury brands, creating iconic garments destined to go down in history.
