BRGN was founded in 2015 by Karine Lunde Trellevik and Ros-Mari Tobiassen Gaundal. They both come from the east of Norway, but moved to Bergen on the west coast after meeting their slightly better halves. After a few years in Bergen they became colleagues and friends. During one of their evening strolls (crawls) up Mount Fløyen, Ros-Mari asked Karine if she found it challenging to find a nice coat to wear in this Bergen weather. With Karine being an experienced designer and Ros-Mari being an excellent business manager, they decided to take the problem into their own hands.
This became BRGN
