As an outdoor brand our mission is to provide the resources necessary, for both the weekend warrior and seasoned veteran alike, to seek out enjoyable and memorable outdoor experiences. At Tillak we also recognize our deeply rooted dependence – and that of the entire outdoor community – on the existence of accessible and healthy open spaces, which is why we commit 25% of our total profits to conservation, restoration, and outdoor recreation-related environmental stewardship efforts.
In parallel with our decision to give back to the land we depend on, we've also decided to incorporate Tillak as a US Benefit Corporation; a relatively new type of for-profit corporate entity that mandates a positive impact on society, workers, the community, and the environment as its legally defined goals. And to further our commitment to the environment, Tillak is also planning on becoming a certified B Corp by the end of 2017. Learn more about Benefit Corporations.
Who we Are
We are outdoor addicts; we are a collection of mountain bikers, back packers, car campers, fly anglers, surfers, snowboarders and climbers. And when our days wind down under an empty sky, we are all whiskey-sipping star-gazers. Through our shared obsession of being outside we’ve spent many, many years searching for those perfect pieces of gear to make our outdoor experiences that much more enjoyable – our aim is to use our collective knowledge to make that search much easier for you.
What we Make
Our goal is to produce a range of products that are as varied and eclectic as our outdoor pursuits. From surfing sunny southern California coastlines, to mountain biking Utah’s Uinta Mountains, to fly fishing the Montana’s rugged and wild rivers, we want to create innovative products that serve a lasting purpose no matter what your endeavor. Our products are creative, durable, and simple. You will not find flashy colors or frilly gadgets here, we aim only to produce gear with a clean aesthetic and an intended but multi-faceted purpose.
All Tillak goods are designed and tested in the Pacific Northwest, after which they accompany us, our friends, and our ambassadors, on our many travels throughout the western United States and elsewhere to have fun outside.
Goods That Give Back™ Program
As outdoor enthusiasts first, and as an outdoor brand second, we recognize that our sanity as fun-seekers, and our longevity as gear-makers relies entirely on having healthy and wide open spaces for us all to play in and enjoy. Clean water along our coastlines, loamy, shaded singletrack through dense forests, cold and clean rivers teeming with fish, access to trails, crags, surf spots, and fishing holes – these coveted places and processes are always at risk of being lost somewhere at almost any given moment.
At Tillak we pay tribute to the places we all enjoy, and the people and organizations that work so tirelessly to protect them, by contributing 25% of profits toward outdoor recreation and conservation-related environmental stewardship efforts.
Here is a growing list of organizations that we plan on working with in the upcoming year. We look forward to expanding our list of partnerships as we grow:
