If you have known us for some time, you’ve probably noticed that subtle change in our appearance. The reason is that as of August 2019, we changed our name from “Pole Goddess” to “Nordenstjerne”.
We needed this rebirth – because a major American Sportswear company tried to knock us out for good by threatening us with a lawsuit. Their claim was based on a far-fetched technicality in trademark registration.
While we were certain that the matter could have been ruled in our favor in court, our company is run by young entrepreneurs. A lawsuit such as this would have ruined us completely.
The fashion industry can be dirty sometimes, but instead of giving in, we renamed our brand.
We are genuinely sorry for the confusion our name change may have caused, but we are still right here, and our values remain: Our products are still sustainable, ethically made and skillfully crafted.
Love Alissia and Jacob
