There was a glorious time in history when fur trading gentlemen with gnarly beards ventured deep into the wilds of North America to procure high end goods desired by civilized culture around the world. The word ‘Hivernant’ is french for ‘winterer’, and was the title earned by a french fur trader once he graduated to spending a winter out in the wild places. Hivernant was a title of pride, respect and status among these men.
"Hivernant" = HVRNT
WHO WE ARE
We don't expect you to believe that we've spent a winter out in a canvas tent somewhere. Although we are based in Minnesota, sooo...well, we do all start wearing shorts when the temperature creeps up to 45 degrees. No really...it's part of the Minnesota MySpace page...it's not? well, it should be.
THE TEAM: Like a proper sea-monster: two heads are way better than one...
Zak Fellman has the gnarly beard, fine art/writing degree, and mad skillz at getting caught in the rain.
Alyson Ogren has the adventurous spirit, advertising/photography degree and knack for way too many details.
We both have an affinity for quality goods, a love for the ridiculous and have trouble sitting on our butts for too long. Together we make a great team with the hustle to craft exceptional goods and produce top-notch creative content.
