Sustainability is not a luxury
At NoSo, we know outdoor adventure is not a luxury to be enjoyed by an elite few. We invented our patches to protect your investment in your clothes and gear. We want playing in the outdoors to be accessible to all, no matter what your income is. Our founder, Kelli Jones was raised by a single mother in a home without frills. She knows what it’s like to have economic disadvantages. As a young person, she lived in her van to save up for her first down payment on her glorified tent (aka yurt) in Kelly, Wyoming.
The challenge of manufacturing in the USA with ethical guidelines means margins are slim. Our price points are never going to compete with legacy brands. This is something we try to reconcile as best we can. We strive to offer a fair price on our patches that enable you to be eco-friendly and practice a sustainable lifestyle. If you are a major ski bum or dirt bag we understand. We think of our patches as sacrificing one apres beer for a patch instead. Win win!
We have a free “seconds” bin (still good but not perfect for retail sale) outside our HQ, and we try to throw up quarterly sales online. These are great opportunities to stock up at reduced prices. Sign up for our newsletter and look out for these specials.
