Rohan was founded in 1972 in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales by husband and wife team Paul and Sarah Howcroft.
Their idea was to take advantage of the new and ground-breaking advances in textiles and use them more intelligently. The design of functional clothing should not be limited by tradition – or a slave to the whims of fashion. Instead it should be relentlessly focused on performance.
Rohan is regarded as the prime innovator in the concept of functional travel clothing – championing the usefulness of such outdoor requirements as lightness, low bulk, quick drying times and sun protective fabrics as equally useful for the globetrotting journalist or the adventurous holidaymaker.

Rohan is dedicated to the idea that you should be able to travel the world unencumbered and free. Our clothing is packed full with clever features so you can do just that. It’s protective, lightweight, packable, easycare and versatile.

Rohan. For Every Journey.


Home to the legendary flame-grilled PERi-PERi chicken, Nando’s is an international food chain originating in South Africa. Founded in 1987, Nando’s operates over 1,000 outlets in 35 countries and specialises in Portuguese-style chicken dishes with various peri-peri marinades.

In 2017, we joined the fight against malaria. Our commitment was simple then and it remains the same now; we will raise money to help fund spraying projects in Mozambique, where our PERi-PERi chilli is from. The spray teams go from home to home, coating the walls in a non-toxic insecticide that protects the family from malaria-carrying mosquitoes.
This year, we’re ramping up our efforts even more, and we’re hoping you will too.
Together, we can help put a stop to malaria for good.
