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. Misty Mountain manages all of its operations responsibly and sustainably. Their products are made in the United States, in a folksy, yet state of the art textile facility in the North Carolina mountains.
Manufacturing locally cuts down substantially on total freight costs in both dollars and carbon emissions, as their products are not sent via container from the other side of the planet. They further reduce their carbon footprint by reusing corrugated boxes from local retailers and suppliers for all of their outgoing shipments. Product designs and manufacturing processes are optimized to minimize waste and promote recycling. Streamlining all of their processes to conserve energy use is an ongoing project at Misty Mountain.
