It has been said that peace is rooted in honoring individuality. We really like that idea. It's a philosophy we try to live by. Making one-of-a-kind Peace is products is our way of sharing that philosophy with you.
Peace is is a family run business born in the Sierra Nevada of northern California. We piece our one-of-a-kind neck gaiter faces out of beautiful textile waste. We collect it from various well known mills and manufacturers in the USA. Our products are basically wearable art made from part of the fashion industry’s dirty little secret...
Mountains of Waste.
We use all new factory Polartec recycled fleece for our lining. It's toasty and wicks away moisture just like your most high tech outdoor gear.
Each “Peace is” is a unique "work of art" that you can feel responsible wearing and confidently rely on its performance and functionality for a very long time. They’re designed for multipurpose and multi use.
“Peace is” was born to a family with an enormous passion for the outdoors. We especially love winter and all of the amazing things it brings, including skiing! Ski, ski, ski...we race, coach, spectate, play in the pow & explore the back country. Keeping warm is rarely a concern as we've all come to love wearing neck gaiters. We love them so much that they've become a 4-season necessity.
Whether it's skiing, biking, fishing, hiking, snowmobiling, getting out of a frigid alpine lake (post water-sports), a not so tropical session in the Pacific (getting worked-aka "surfing") or sitting in a chilly lecture hall, a Peace is fleece lined neck gaiter offers instant cozy all year long.
The one-of-a-kind "work of art" aspect of Peace is was born on the ski hill during my years of coaching mighty-mites. Those face-licking, snot flying, little rippers would forget they were cold. As a coach fearful of frost bite, I introduced one-of-a-kind fleece lined neck gaiters to my crew each year. Back then I used prints that spoke to those little tykes; dogs, cats, flowers, bumble bees, polka-dots, stars, tie-dye & fireworks. I listened to their favorites and gave them it all! I tried to make each one a little different to honor the individuality of the child.
Nowadays, we're making them a little more sophisticated, but definitely not too serious... We just try to keep them unique, functional, kind of hip & fun and of course SUSTAINABLE.
Why? Because eventually, all those Mighty-mites grew up. They became sorta mighty mature. They started doing big kid stuff like exploring the globe, professional athletics, higher education or entered the workforce. They took their one-of-a-kind Peace is neck gaiters with them!
Off they went to work & play. To the backcountry, college, the southern hemisphere, Europe, FIS World Cups & even the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, Korea.
As of 2020 we can add global pandemic PPE to the list.
Needless to say, it's been an honor to be along for the ride.
Joining you on your journey would be an absolute honor as well!
Please don’t shy away from making direct contact! We’re sold out more often than not. However, you’re ALWAYS invited to hop in the que for a custom design.
DO NOT hesitate to request something perfectly unique. After all, honoring individuality is what we’re all about :)
