Alps & Meters at Saybrook Home

BORN IN THE MOUNTAINS OF EUROPE. DESIGNED IN NEW ENGLAND, USA.

 

Alps & Meters began with the discovery of a vintage ski sweater on a snow-filled trip to the village of Åre, Sweden. Since its inception, it has been their mission to build a brand on a set of traditional values that reflect their deep appreciation for authentic alpine sport and to create timeless alpine apparel with uncompromising performance.

Alps & Meters products are designed by tradition. Combining natural materials, classic garment construction techniques, and contemporary technologies, Alps & Meters creates garments that are tailored, technical and timeless.

Alps & Meters is committed to the use of natural materials like wools and cottons. When harvested properly, these materials can be developed into garments that minimize the ecological impact.

When choosing their material partners they look for suppliers who can provide raw materials that are obtained according to their values and are capable of producing garments that are durable enough to be passed down through generations.

These limited and unique manufacturing partners produce their technical alpine sport garments in a manner aligned with their complex Forged Performance product philosophy in a socially responsible way, with a commitment to supporting their principles and mission.
