More sustainable consumption
Long live the product! We aim to take the lead on circular economy, by collaborating with our customers through services such as repair, rental, reuse and redesign.
Long live the product
The longer a garment is in use, the smaller the ecological footprint will be. Therefore, we create solid and comfortable products that you can enjoy for years. And that's why we are so enthusiastic about rapairing products. On the day your garments can’t be used anymore, we would like you to return them to us and we will learn, repair, redesign, sell used - and take our part of the environmental responsibility. Then you make sure that the future generations will be able to breathe fresh air, and enjoy nature!
We also rent out products to all those who do not necessarily need to own them. And we are actively committed to providing consumers with useful hints and advice on product wash care and maintenance - to give their products a long life. Long life the product!
Find the right product
The longer a product is in use, the more sustainable it will be.
To be able to enjoy your product for a long time, it must satisfy your needs. It is important that you choose the right product for your type of usage. That's how you can avoid dealing with products that will rarely be used - which is neither good for you nor the environment!
We are happy to help you find a product with the right performance and fit for your purposes. Good and detailed product information is key to find the right product.
Do you feel that a Bergans product does not fit as well as it used to? Or have you found a new pair of dream pants that are too long?

We focus continually on developing quality products with a long service life, while we prolong product life by offering a product repair service.
In the past it was common to repair clothing and equipment that was broken. At Bergans we have kept this tradition until today. Our experienced colleagues in our workshop can repair small or bigger faults at any Bergans product. Each repair executed means a benefit for the environment since the products lifetime gets extended.
We want our products to be out in nature as long as possible. A long product liftime means a more sustainable product, and less use of ressources, like water, energy or chemicals.
In our flagship store in Oslo we sell second-hand Bergans products . These products are functional, but can be used or repaired or due to other reasons not ready to be sold through ordinary channels.
When a product has lost its functionality, we utilize the materials by re-design them into another type of product. We always aim to ensure that the new product will meet an existing need. These products are for the time being only available in Norway.
Redesign products are made of:
- A product that has lost its function.
- Parts of a product that is damaged.
- Leftover materials from production and repair.
A redesigned product should always have a function. We in Bergans regard all textiles as a resource. Worn out textiles should not be disposed as litter.
When a product can no longer be repaired, sold as used or re-sewn into another type of product, we ensure that the materials are further processed and dealt with appropriately. Remember that textiles should not be discarded as residual waste!
Bergans cooperates with the organization UFF, which collects, recycles and re-sells worn clothing and distributes them for charity reasons. All clothing which is not suitable for our own re-sell or re-design programme will be forwarded to UFF, in order to guarantee a new life for those textiles and materials.
