It all began in the Winter of 2002, as we watched the snow fall with anticipation through the windows of a cabin in the woods. There was no internet, TV, or cell service back then, so our Aunt taught us the in’s and out’s of knitting to pass time until daybreak. We viewed the craft as a means to blend the comfort we saw that night in the cabin and the endless enjoyment that fresh snow brought us in the days that followed. With that mentality as our roots, we founded Rime in 2005 and have continued to evolve through exploration of the great outdoors.
A lifetime of enjoying the elements has taught us two key lessons. First, you don’t always need the most technical gear to have a good time outside – you just need to be comfortable. Second, our world is connected in ways we could never fully understand, and our gear shouldn’t have to be made in ways that ruin it. So without overcomplicating things, we design pieces for purpose and create them in ways to give back to the lands we love.
