The K-Way® brand was created in Paris in 1965. On a rainy day, clothes retailer Léon-Claude Duhamel observed as people rushed by in soaking wet clothes, with uncomfortable umbrellas in their hands. And he had an insight: creating a waterproof object that could be carried all times, but which was neither an umbrella nor a raincoat. K-Way® is the waterproof jacket par excellence: classic, modern, technologic, functional and coloured. Since 2004 kway becomes the property of Basicnet Group.
