Three entrepreneurial brothers. One great invention. In 1933, Björn, Alvar and Arvid Kjellström invented the first ever liquid-filled compass, and the SILVA story began. Not only was it the first compass of its kind, but is also set the global standard for how navigation works. The SILVA brand was born. Today, SILVA focuses on three main user areas; Sport, Adventure and Work. Each one of these areas are constantly evaluated and updated, for you to enjoy high quality products and always feel prepared and ready with SILVA.
