While Quiksilver is known mostly for its stunning designs in streetwear, the brand is actually made for surfers and other boardsports such as skateboarding. In 1969, founder Alan Green from Victoria, Australia loaned $2500 from his father and created wetsuits for surfers. After its success, Alan partnered with cofounder John Law and created Quiksilver’s first boardshorts - an essential surfing garment. The two are attributed for spreading the popularity of surfing apparel, not only in Australia but around the world.
Today, Quiksilver is operates with 834 flagship stores across Australia, New Zealand, Asia, North and South America, Africa and Europe. The company also manufactures apparel for women under Roxy, DC and Quiksilver Women. What’s so appealing about Quiksilver is its dedication to surfing and boardsports. Since its establishment, Quiksilver had sponsored events, surfers, skateboarders and have collaborated with them to bring the best products to the public, but you don’t have to be a surfer to get the latest Quiksilver bags and clothing in Malaysia!
The Quiksilver name and logo
Quiksilver has been a household name for surfers, skateboarders and travellers for providing quality outdoor goods, and along with it comes the popularity of the Quiksilver logo. According to its founder Alan Green, his wife - Barbara, was reading a book when he came across the term “Quicksilver”, describing something elusive, liquid and metallic that can morph into anything at anytime. Alan later removed the ‘c’ and thus the term “Quiksilver” was born - a term used by alchemist to turn ordinary metals into gold.
The logo on the other hand was a co-creation between the two founders, Alan and John Law. It was inspired by the famous woodblock painting from the greatest Japanese painter in history - Hokusai called The Great Wave of Kanagawa. The logo features a wave on the left hand side, with a mountain on the background, similar to the famous painting.
