    NW Alpine

    Bill Amos is a passionate climber. But that wasn’t the only reason he decided to launch NW Alpine – a Portland, Oregon outdoor clothing company committed to manufacturing all of its products in the U.S.

    Bill enjoys the study of economics. In 2008, when the economy turned south, Bill was driven to research what had happened, and to uncover a solution. “I came to the conclusion that the only way that the economy could have a real recovery is by bringing manufacturing back to the States,” Bill said.

    Bill decided he needed to start a manufacturing business. He loved climbing, so he put his focus on climbing apparel. At the time, established climbing brands were shifting toward lifestyle products. Unimpressed, Bill committed to creating apparel for the core user.

    “I wanted clothes that were stripped down aesthetically that you could actually use for climbing, not just for walking your dog—for people who are actually climbing and not just want to look like they’re climbing,” Bill said.

    Kicking butt for small brands

    Early last year, completely on a whim, I sent an e-mail about Kula Cloth to Garage Grown Gear. At the time, I didn't even have the final product - I was frantically churning out prototypes and feverishly navigating the uncharted waters of figuring out a production process for my piece of gear.

    I was stunned when Lloyd from Garage Grown Gear wrote back to me - and wanted to meet me at Outdoor Retailer in Denver to talk about my product. Nervously, I met him in the lobby and gave him a prototype for Kula. He delivered a prototype to Amy Hatch, the founder of GGG, who used it on a week long backpacking trip in the Wind River Range and LOVED it (coincidentally enough, the idea for Kula came to me while I was backpacking in the Winds in 2015).

    Amy and Lloyd believed in me long before there was 'proof' that Kula was going to be a success... long before I even had the final product. They saw the greater vision for what Kula represents - a vision for a community of empowered women and girls who are setting the example for Leave No Trace ethics by choosing to adventure with intention.

    I will never, EVER be able to forget the grace, support and wisdom that have been bestowed upon me by Amy and Lloyd. I'm truly grateful that they were able to see the dream for Kula Cloth through my eyes - and I'm so blessed to consider them friends. Amy and Lloyd do amazing things for start-up brands, and I cannot recommend them and the products that they endorse more fully.
