industrial fishing



a workplace that requires
the correct workwear

Denmark is surrounded by water, making fishing a traditional and natural business in Denmark. Since ELKA’s foundation in 1958 one of our main objectives has been the outfitting and protection of fishermen on the Danish fishing fleets. After sixty years of sending these heavy duty garments out to sea to work in severe weather conditions, we are proud to say that they stand up to the test every time. Maybe you have noticed the yellow ELKA braces around the dock areas?

the toughest 2-layer fishing wear on the market

The latest development within our fishing range.

The  excellent tear strength and high resistance to abrasion makes these products the toughest on the market and are wind- and water resistant 


collaboration with innovative european producers

The advantages of the ELKA quality lie in the production and the treatment of the fabric we use. Our fabric is developed in collaboration with innovative European producers and meet the requirements of REACH, meaning that the fabrics are safe to wear and free from harmful chemicals banned in the EU.

The fabrics have high water columns, making the garments ideal for rough seas and days of continuous rain.The fabrics used for the ELKA industrial fishing collection is cold- and fish oil resistant. This means that the marked products are especially durable when working in cold weather – down to -30°C, as the fabric does not crack or become stiff. Furthermore, the resistance against fish oils make it optimal for this line of work, as the fabric does not deteriorate.

nordic fishing

freedom of movement  

The Nordic Fishing collection is developed in collaboration with European fishermen, to provide garments where focus is on the freedom of movement compared to traditional heavy duty PVC. Working in this industry sometimes requires a tough and durable garment, which at the same time is flexible and stretchable. This collection of workwear is comprised of a variety of medium duty PVC fabrics, where a lighter and stretchable material on the back and hood enhance comfort and movement. All fabrics are oil and cold resistant and with a focus on details and functionality.
