Thank you so much for checking out the very first Terracea blog post! Your support really means the world to us, so in return we'll try to make your visit worthwhile and enjoyable.
Our whole website has been in the works for a long time and we're super excited to have finally launched. There is a ton of stuff we could get into here, but how about we talk about a really big next step in the continuing rollout of Terracea! Any guesses what it might be? Anyone? I'll give you a hint... IT'S T-SHIRTS AND WATER BOTTLES. And definitely stickers. And possibly hoodies. But definitely the first three. Congrats if you guessed it! If you did, you're entitled to a thunderous high five from no less than one co-founder of Terracea (assuming we ever meet in person).
We are in the process of evaluating t-shirt and water bottle samples to figure out which lucky styles will be adorned with the Terracea logo! Check the video below for a look into our in-depth, exhaustive, meticulous vetting process. You could say it includes a little... FORCED... humor.
In all seriousness, we're focused on picking items that are high quality and that we'd be happy to use ourselves. That's really how we've approached everything about this company so far - if we wouldn't rock it, how could we reasonably expect anyone else to? Answer: We couldn't. As far as timing, we're a couple weeks out from having our official t-shirts and water bottles ready to ship. But fear not friend! We'll be sure to keep you updated as we get closer - best bet is via our NEWSLETTER so sign up if you haven't yet!
On the subject of high quality items, we are also SUPER excited to give you a sneak peek at some jacket protosamples! ("Protosample" is a fancy industry term for first prototype.) We have been hard at work reviewing and refining every minute detail with our designer, who is absolutely incredible. She has worked in technical outerwear for decades with a variety of major players - for instance, she worked directly with Jake Burton. Like THE Jake Burton. From Burton Snowboards. Anyway, it shows in her attention to detail and complete grasp of all the intricacies that go into creating premium outerwear. She's also extremely nice. So take a look and let us know what you think! Just bear in mind that they are protosamples, so they feature a mish-mash of components and measurements. There are a lot of construction points that will be revised and cleaned up in our final products. If you're interested in learning more about our fabrics, check out OUR PRODUCTS.
There is so much more we could go into but this seems like a pretty decent stopping point. We promised a haiku, so let's finish off with that! Leave us a comment, a few words of encouragement, maybe a haiku of your own, and check back soon for our next blog post which might include a video of Terracea co-founder Brian ragdolling on a giant inflatable ball run at the Boston Ski & Snowboard Expo...
