About Silva

In 1933, three brothers - Björn, Alvar and Arvid Kjellström – put their heads together to create something revolutionary. They invented the first ever liquid-filled compass, and it was this innovation that started the Silva brand. With their invention becoming an extremely popular standard in the world of navigation, they continued to work and evolve, always stiving to innovate in the world of outdoor gear. From their Swedish roots to today’s worldwide recognition, Silva has never stopped working to set new standards across the industry.
