Celtek was founded in 2003 by professional snowboarders and brothers, Bjorn & Erik Leines, key players in the action sports market for decades. Representing top brands in the industry, they have designed products while traveling the world and networking with top industry executives. Their well-known names bring credibility to the brand, opening the door to retail sales, top athlete endorsement and a devoted following through the Celtek Clan. Celtek designs, markets and sells innovative, art-inspired accessories for the action sports market that foster a sense of individualism, authenticity and creativity in the consumer. Over the past 6 years, the Celtek brand has grown from the roots up, expanding and gaining momentum along the way. The product line, which started out as just a few simple pairs of gloves, now includes a full line of men’s and women’s gloves, accessories and apparel. The distribution has exploded from a few core shops in the US to hundreds of shops in nearly 20 countries. After a recent round of financing and adding key board members, Celtek stands ready to succeed beyond just the snowboard market, in the broader action sports industry.
