In 1992, Beaver Theodosakis and his wife Pam started prAna in their garage in Carlsbad, California, and remain involved to this day. Together, they built prAna slowly and with purpose, taking care to limit the size of its footprint. They sewed the first pieces themselves and labeled them with tags from homemade recycled paper. The clothes were originally shipped in fruit boxes they gathered from the local grocery store.
This year, we celebrate 21 years in existence. We started simply, rooted in idealism and a timeless belief that companies like ours should strive to give much more than they take from the world. That notion keeps us focused on making products that look great, but that are also easier on the planet’s resources.
