In the Himalayas, outerwear forms an integral part of the daily uniform.

ABODE OF SNOW, referencing the English translation of ‘Himalaya,’ was founded by Tenzin Wild and Tao Okamoto as a platform for the stories of the Himalayas, its people, and its rich culture. Through modernizing traditional practices in the creation of contemporary outerwear, ABODE OF SNOW exists as an homage to all those with ancestry from the beautiful, mountainous region. ABODE OF SNOW will bring you stories about this distinctive community living in color in the Himalayas.

ABODE OF SNOW combines the most important traditions of our Tibetan and Japanese heritages, respectively. Working with a family of artisans in Japan and Nepal, using ethical, sustainable, and high-quality materials, we are producing designs that are constructed to last.

We support Cure Blindness, the Himalayan Cataract Project. Since 1995, HCP and their partners have performed over 1 Million surgeries to eradicate preventable blindness throughout the developing world.
