In 1977, the success story of the company Nikwax began: Back then, Nick Brown, a hiking enthusiast who loves to travel, produced his own waterproofing wax to keep his leather boots dry. Since then, Nikwax has developed into one of the largest manufacturers of high-quality cleaning and waterproofing products and now sells its products in 50 different countries. Whatever the weather – Nikwax keeps you dry and warm
