SHERPA ADVENTURE GEAR WINTER PERFORMANCE WEAR 2012/13



Nepal-born and raised, Tashi Sherpa created the label "SHERPA Adventure Gear" - a collection that always had the color thing down pat...being a collection of lifestyle and technical apparel and accessories that wonderfully source the bright saturated tones and prints from that part of the world.


HIGHLIGHTS:

Reclaimed wool serves as the material for hand knit hats, scarves and fingerless, modern day friendly mittens (available now)...each unique and with proceeds benefitting the Paldorje Fund (a clan name, fyi)...that sponsors childrens' school.





Pema Hat

lined with fleece-no itch


Rani Hat

smartphone friendly, we wore a pair all winter







Mt. Everest worthy-the hooded Thamserku (name of a peak)







Snagye-an oversized plaid in techno wool warm when wet


Rabten Jacket----lined with warm fleece insulation-with Lung Ta prayer flags pull tags

Lotus flower detail

We loved the long sleeve tees that celebrate the unsung heroes of trekking-Sherpas....







The print of these women tees are inspired by the aprons that Sherpa women wear.


made of 24% wool-for warmth-silky comfy hand feel



Nice detail- brass buttons-an acrylic poly wool





Thongmir Skirt-long, warm, ripstop nylon with insulating Primaloft-

Lhasa Down Coat-100% ripstop nylon in bright pink LOVE.
