Today is the start of an exciting new chapter for Orsden. After four years of offering technical ski apparel, our focus has shifted to casual, elevated essentials inspired by life in the mountains. Think warm flannels and cozy sweaters that work both in the mountains and in the city. It wasn't an easy decision to make this transition. I loved producing the technical apparel, but there were many challenges to manufacturing those garments as a small, independent brand. And when I thought about what I really love about skiing, it's the lifestyle of the sport from the mountain travel to the time spent with friends and family and the emotional connection to the alpine experience.
With that inspiration, I've curated a collection of elevated essentials for modern mountain life from a carefully selected mix of designers who share our values of conscious quality, original design, and everyday luxury.
Our original plan was to open a store in Manchester, VT to share these items with you in person. However, given COVID, the experience will remain virtual for now on orsden.com. I hope you'll take a look and check back often as there will be new items available throughout the season.
Stay well and see you on the mountains.
