SUPPLYING NOMADS & ADVENTURERS SINCE 1895.
Joseph Henry 1895 started in 1895 when having sold his few worldly possessions Joseph (our great grandfather) traveled across the ocean from the Baltics to the shores of South Africa. He journeyed on covering over 1000 miles of wild and rugged terrain with a friend, horse, compass, pistol and dreams of a better life in a new land. Later on he set up an outpost supplying nomads and adventurers. Inspired by him and his son Henry – a boxer, a mining engineer and a Hurricane fighter pilot during WW2, the original adventurers behind the brand, Joseph Henry 1895 was created.
