Something you might not know about me is that I spent my early 20's leading outdoor adventure trips in California, the Pacific Northwest and along the East Coast. During my summer's in college and shortly thereafter I lead kayaking, sailing, hiking, canoeing, biking and backpacking trips for teens and I absolutely loved it!

Spending time in nature and up to a month on a trip at a time with limited access to laundry, I came to understand the importance of well made clothing that would withstand all the outdoor adventures and travel. I sought out clothing that had little impact on our planet to protect the natural world I was playing in. And clothing that would not only be perfect for playing hard, but would also look good on the street and in the yoga studio on my off duty days.  During this time I discovered prAna.

While I no longer take groups of teens sailing or hiking for weeks at a time, I still depend on prAna for both playing (not quite as hard as I used to) outdoors and for my off-duty time on the street, at the yoga studio and at home. The prAna Rockaway Jacket and Ryley Crop were perfect for my recent outing for coffee and groceries in Burien after a stop at the park for a short walk and mindful meditation.

prAna's Roots

prAna was started in a garage in Carlsbad, California in 1992 by Beaver and Pam Theodosakis. At the time, there were few options in the way of yoga and climbing gear, so Beaver and Pam decided to create their own stylish and sustainable clothing. They made the first pieces themselves and shipped their orders in fruit boxes from local grocery stores with tags made from recycled paper. Thank you Beaver and Pam!

prAna is Stylish & Versatile Enough for Any Adventure

prAna clothing not only looks great, but is also truly versatile enough for any lifestyle and all adventures. From off-duty on the street to the mountains and even for work at the office, this prAna fan and many pRana fans out there will wear our prAna gear all year round and all day long.

This versatile but classy clothing makes for outfits that can be worn to work, to the barre studio or on an adventure to another country. prAna's mission is to give people the option of reaching into their closet and dressing in items that reflect who they are, how they feel and what they value most. Love this!

And all of prAna's clothing is created and tested by designers based on their own love for outdoor activities! Yogis, climbers and world travelers design and test each piece of prAna clothing and each accesory to make sure it not only looks good but plays hard.

prAna creates versatile, stylish and sustainable clothing and accessories that you can wear during every adventure, every activity, and everyday. Every prAna item you can put on in the morning and confidently wear all day long, or throw in your bag and know you are ready for whatever adventure your day may find!  

However, while prAna clothing and accessories is made to accommodate any adventure, they are first and foremost mindfully made in order to support fair trade and sustainable practices. prAna's core belief is to give back more than they take from the world.

  1. This is superb style for a casual look. Choosing the right clothes at the right time is the biggest struggle of every girl. But not anymore, because I have got a great website with amazing casual dresses for women and so such great stuff for girls. I must suggest to visit that website.
