The Ocun story begins in 1988 when Pavel Hendrych starts making harnesses at home. His main tool is his grandmothers sewing machine, and his materials are mostly decommissioned brake parachutes from the Czechoslovak Air Force. Acouple of years later Pavel's hobby starts getting more serious. He quits his day job and goes full time. Since then the Ocun range has rapidly expanded to include hardware, boulder pads, rock shoes and accessories. Fast forward to 2015 and Ocun don't just make their own goods, they make the soft goods for some very big climbing brands.
