Our garments take their lead from the life of Ed Hillary and our New Zealand roots with a contemporary focus on sustainability. As well as replicating some of the original fabrics and construction methods used in the original 1953 expedition of Mt Everest, we also use New Zealand merino and recycled materials.
Using recycled materials lessens our need to extract raw materials. Recycled materials also require less energy and water, and allow us to make use of materials that might otherwise end up in a landfill. And that’s good for our precious world.
