Our Journey

BRANDED WITH HERITAGE….OUR HISTORY

Founded in 1991 – Mizenhead manufactured headwear, wax jackets and fleece jackets for the Irish/European and US markets – at its peak employing 50 machinists in its 5000 sq ft factory in Bantry, West Cork.

In 1998 Mizenhead started manufacturing wax jackets for Timberland’s European Market – and that started a partnership that has lasted right up to today and continues to develop with the VF Corporation and their brands such as The North Face and Vans.

www.mizenhead.com  is where you will be able to purchase all your favourite street and outdoor VFC brands on the one platform…with a local aftercare service from our dedicated care team here in Ireland.

    VF Corporation bought the Timberland Company and this opened the possibility of Mizenhead working with some of the VF stable of brands – and so now Mizenhead also partners with ‘The North Face’ and ‘VANs’ operating the North Face Store in Dundrum and the VANs stores in Dundrum and Jervis Centre and featuring the three brands on its websites – www.mizenhead.com and www.timberlandireland.ie
