YAMAtune

YAMAtune’s story begins in Nagoya, in the Chūbu region of Japan, in 1963, where Tsuneyuki Ito formed the womenswear brand YAMA Tsune, before later expanding his range of goods to include knitwear products built to serve the country’s growing need for durable and high quality knitted apparel, producing goods for many of the country’s most notable brands at the time. YAMA Tsune responded to an increasing need for work gloves and socks, as brought on by Japan’s rapid growth and upturn in industry, by adopting a production ethos centred around quality of materials and detailed construction methods, seeking to produce accessories and apparel goods that maximised comfort and longevity, serving a multitude of needs and eliminating the need for regular replacement. Fast forward a few decades and the brand’s ethos of creating quality goods built to last remains.


Having rebranded in 2014, and with a flagship store in Higashikawa, Hokkaido showcasing the company’s original knitting machines and serving the needs of locals and outdoor enthusiasts alike, YAMAtune combines its meticulous design approach with over 50 years of production experience to create the highest quality performance socks for marathoning, outdoor pursuits, athletics and everyday use. And Tsuneyuki Ito still visits the store to this day to oil and maintain its machines.

VÅGA

(v.) to dare; to venture; to risk.

_

Born in the Lake District, United Kingdom, Våga is an innovative sportswear company designing high performance, bright and colourful running hats with the runner in mind.

Our original soft shell, short peak Våga was a running cap designed to be functional on the fells of cumbria, but had since proved to be a great all-rounder, used by many all over the world.  

As we began to share our journey online, selling caps to local trail and fell runners organically grew to road runners, hikers, climbers and outdoor enthusiasts further afield. We refer to our community as team Våga. 

As team Våga we feel that despite having some elite athletes among us, our common ground is our spirit. It is more about why, rather than how fast, how long or how high. At Våga we dare, we venture and we risk. 

At Våga, we strive to create great new products for those who have put their trust in us, as well as those we will reach in the future. We strive to help grow the community of team Våga and what it stands for, and ensure that all our energy is invested in ideas and results that benefit all those who engage with Våga and leave a positive impact on the environment.
