Established in Seattle in 1993, Manastash is an outdoor brand whose goal is, “to create functional, stylish, and earth-friendly clothing based on the free wheeling lifestyle.” The brand was named after a trail in Washington State in the Cascade Mountains extending from B.C. Canada throughout Northern California.
Now under Japanese ownership, Manastash prioritizes eco-friendly materials such as recycled fleece, and was one of the first brands to utilize hemp in their clothing. Hemp is known for its characteristics to absorb moisture and to release heat, as well as for its natural infection-fighting properties. Coupling sustainability with incredible design, the brand uses unique block patterning, bright-contrasting color schemes, and super soft fleece to create unique and long lasting products with minimal impact on the environment.
