TRAPPER COLLECTION

The Trapper Collection is inspired by the clothing worn by the earliest Svalbard pioneers. Since the 1600s, whalers and trappers came to Svalbard - formerly known as Spitsbergen - seeking riches from the sea and the land.

 

The harsh working conditions and unforgiving Arctic climate took the lives of many, and men were buried in full clothing. Amazingly, their clothing has remained mostly intact due to the frozen permafrost layer.

Pictured here is Farmhamna, one of the last active trapping stations on Svalbard.

Original whaler’s hat found in the North West of Spitsbergen and dating back to the mid 17th century.

 

It is now on display at the Svalbard Museum.
