More About Nikwax

View all Nikwax

Born in 1954, Nick Brown was brought up in Kent and introduced to trekking in the Peaks with his father. He was dissatisfied with the waterproofing products available, so he created his own recipe for preserving his boots. It was important to make the boots waterproof without softening them, thus losing their essential supportive features. Nick's wax was the beginning of a remarkable success story.

Nikwax® was first produced as a commercial product in a North London flat. In 1977, at 22 years of age, Nick mixed his first order with a discarded tea urn, a Primus stove, a jug and materials bought from a local hardware store. The wax was then poured into tins which he silk screened by hand. Nick sold his products to the outdoor trade. Later he bought an Inter Rail card to introduce his product into Europe. Next he moved to a workshop in Clerkenwell in London and before he knew it, Nick was selling his product to eight countries. The product was a non-softening waterproofing wax for leather boots. It was so effective that it set the standard for a new breed of aftercare products under the Nikwax brand.

As a walker and outdoor enthusiast Nick turned his imaginative mind to walkers' apparel, which, as with the boots, needed to stay waterproof, wind-resistant and comfortable. It was around 1980 that the beginning of Green Thinking, awareness of ozone depletion and the problems relating to aerosols, arose. In 1983, determined to find new, easy and clean ways to waterproof garments, Nick developed an entirely novel approach. Harmful and flammable solvents were replaced with water, and the Nikwax Water-Based Range was created.

Nikwax was the first company in the world to produce a range of water-based products for restoring waterproofing in the home. Not only did the products avoid emitting harmful solvents into the atmosphere, but they were also very easy to use, allowing people to reproof their clothes in a washing machine. The range of Nikwax products has grown to encompass systems for a multitude of uses; from ropes to tents, indeed, almost anything that needed regular help to maintain its resistance to water.
