Sherpa are a fairly new brand for TYF. We first started working with them in 2018 and their soft and durable fabrics were a hit. 

Mission Statement

Weaving together the latest designs and technology with the rich heritage and time-honoured beliefs of Nepal

About

Sherpa Adventure Gear was founded in May 2003 by Tashi Sherpa, as a living memorial to the unsung heroes of Mt. Everest.Since the first ascents of Everest, climbers have relied upon the invaluable assistance of a Sherpa companion on the treacherous slopes of the Himalayas . It is the Sherpa who makes the route, carries the load and sets the ropes to the top and back. 


We are a small brand with a big heart, dedicated to providing economic and social stability to the people of Nepal through steady employment, quality working conditions and educational opportunities for future generations.Each season we grow. But at the core we will always be a small brand changing the world in the inimitable way of the Sherpas: one step at a time, helping each other on the climb up, and never losing sight of the destination. 


We are Sherpa.

Core Values

Tradition

From the highest peaks of the Himalayas, our people lead the world of mountaineering with warmth, grace and good humour. As a Sherpa-founded company, we seek to honour our legendary high altitude climbers by creating adventure gear that earns their praise


Ancient Wisdom

For hundreds of years, Sherpas have searched for the most beautiful ways to stay warm, dry and comfortable in the highest mountains on earth. So today, naturally, we embrace the latest technical materials and designs, and we test our gear in the Himalayas for your greater well-being, we also weave into every garment a rich heritage of time-honoured beliefs and humility. It is an odyssey of the heart.


Brand Expedition

We’re a small brand with a great big heart, and every authentic garment we make—for trekking, travelling and exploring the world— reflects our Himalayan homeland. Whether summiting an unclimbed peak, trekking a vast savanna or sightseeing in an exotic market, Sherpa creates 4 season gear designed to deliver safety, comfort and style. We believe the journey of life is the greatest adventure of all.


Work not charity

Making products in Nepal means the world to our communities. By bringing meaningful employment and income to so many, we’re able to make a lasting difference in their lives. As we grow, so will our employees.


Environment Conscious 

We are committed to constantly improving the environmental impact of sourcing, manufacturing, packaging, distribution and recycling efforts throughout all phases of our business. We always strive to do better. 


NepalSupporting Nepal 

Saying ‘Made in Nepal’ means the world to us – socially, economically and environmentally. Because we are Sherpa-founded, we are very pleased to report that many of our products come directly from Kathmandu. In 2018 Sherpa employed 1600 local people, 1296 of which were women.


EducationYouth Programs 

For every garment Sherpa Adventure Gear sells, a small donation is made to provide scholarships to children who grow up in remote Himalayan villages. Sherpa currently supports 10 local children with full time education scholarships and paid for 7050 school meals in 2018.
