Tierra has over 30 years' experience creating high-end, functional clothing for climbers. It has built a firm following in Scandinavia thanks to its intuitive, solid designs with a fantastic fit that offer exceptional attention to detail, which it couples with great quality fabrics. Tierra's streamlined range is amazingly built for purpose, constructed for ultimate performance, and benefits from an excellent, glove-like fit. It was one of the first Nordic brands to incorporate Gore-Tex into clothing. The UK launch is its first venture outside of Scandinavia.
Tierra cut its teeth on the first all-Swedish expedition to Everest in the 80s and supports a wide range of professionals and organisations including the Swedish Mountain Rescue team. In preparation for its UK launch, Tierra became the 'Official Clothing Partner' of International School of Mountaineering (ISM), supplying all clothing for the iconic school's guides.
