When we were conceptualizing ABODE OF SNOW, the English translation of ‘Himalaya,’ we wanted to figure out a way to tell the stories of Tibet, its people, and its rich culture through the lens of a contemporary outerwear brand. We love the outdoors, and our parents and ancestors come from the enormously powerful Himalayas; years in the making, we are finally launching ABODE OF SNOW.
ABODE OF SNOW combines the most important traditions of our Tibetan and Japanese heritages, respectively. Working with a family of artisans in Japan and 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.
