Misty Mountain

,

Misty Mountain Threadworks was founded on the belief that it could make the finest climbing harnesses in the world, and that this could be accomplished in a manner that was respectful of all involved – customers, employees, vendor partners and owners alike. Years of experiencing the forests, cliffs and rivers of the Southern Appalachian Range has taught us to care for the World in which we work and live. Misty Mountain manages all of its operations responsibly and sustainably. Our products are made in the United States, in our folksy yet state of the art textile facility in the North Carolina mountains. Manufacturing locally means that we provide employment for skilled workers in a shrinking manufacturing economy. Manufacturing locally also cuts down substantially on total freight costs in both dollars and carbon emissions, as our products are not sent via container from the other side of the planet. We further reduce our carbon footprint by reusing corrugated boxes from local retailers and suppliers for all of our outgoing shipments. Product designs and manufacturing processes are optimized to minimize waste and promote recycling. Streamlining all of our processes to conserve energy use is an ongoing project at Misty Mountain.
