Born in New Zealand in 1987, Kathmandu is inspired by the country’s towering mountains, mist-cloaked fjords, and golden beaches in quiet bays—perfect for dreaming up, designing, and testing outdoor gear and apparel.

Despite being a New Zealand brand, the name Kathmandu holds historical significance. Once thought to be a fabled, inaccessible destination, Kathmandu evoked dreams of magical vistas and scaling mountains, inspiring the creation of this outdoor brand. While Kathmandu, Nepal, is more accessible now, it still represents majesty and intrigue, reflecting the brand’s roots and inspiration.

In 2019, Kathmandu became part of the global B Corp movement, meeting high standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability. By 2023, Kathmandu was proud to be re-certified and commended by B Lab for significant improvements to its impact. As a certified B Corp, Kathmandu is among businesses leading a global movement for an inclusive, equitable, and regenerative economy.

Kathmandu’s mission is to improve the wellbeing of the world through the outdoors by creating products that encourage exploration. Known for innovation, durability, and adventure, Kathmandu proudly features at Valley + Peak.
