SILVA is a Swedish brand that has developed & sold outdoor accessories since 1933. Compasses & headlamps are in the heart of their business. Three entrepreneurial brothers. One great invention. In 1933, Björn, Alvar and Arvid Kjellström invented the first ever liquid-filled compass, and their story began. Not only was it the first compass of its kind, but is also set the global standard for how navigation works. The SILVA brand was born.
