The company was originally grounded in 1993 although it’s history reaches the end of the 80’s. Back in the days when the biggest neighbor of Poland was the Soviet Union and there was practically no private initiative allowed, today’s owners of Milo have started to sew their first jackets on two simple sewing machines in one of their rooms in a small flat in Warsaw. In those times they were one of the very few polish climbing and mountaineering garment manufacturers and pioneers in this branch. After the political changes, in the early 90’s, they started to build their experience in the biggest polish outdoor brand at that time – and a no longer existing one. Although the company had its best years in those days, they decided to quit. They wanted to develop their own ideas and specialize in climbing and mountaineering garment. This was the moment when Milo was grounded. In 1993 a small company was starting it’s big climb. Right from the start the products were oriented to be originally designed and produced to meet up the highest quality standards. First jackets were made using the Sympatex membrane but soon it proved to be not enough. The range of products was constantly broadened from light and simple cotton items to highly technical Gelanots and Polartec jackets and the most recognizable and appreciated range of Extendo trekking pants. Unconventionally designed backpacks and accessories have made the collection even more complete. After a few years Milo became easily recognizable in Poland and gained a deserved opinion of a high quality brand. Soon came the time to go abroad. Even if the first visits to international trade fairs were everything else than successful, they brought the necessary experience to take profits from in the forthcoming years. After a while the number of foreign partners came close to the quantity of the polish ones and the exportation of Milo products became the main company’s objective. That’s how it looks now and Milo is still setting its climbing route… that’s why its motto sounds “Milo …of climbing”.
