Friends! I’ve had the absolute best time working with prAna recently! Here’s the rundown of their awesomeness …
A few weeks ago I visited their store in Portland. It’s in the darling NW 23rd area called the Alphabet District and is full of quaint shops and delicious restaurants. We (my Mom, the littles and I) paid homage to Salt & Straw and then made our way to prAna to take a peek at the Fall collection.
This sounds like the perfect afternoon, right? Hangin’ with my ma, ice cream, shopping, showing off Portland to the kiddos. But no, I somehow timed all the fun of our day during nap time. Sooooo, emotion explosion time 2,000.
Jem and Max combusted in all their glory while the sweet gal at prAna tried to cool their jets with some licorice. Amidst her snot and tears over my phone dying (read, my only hope at quiet in the dressing room) Jemma declared that “wickorish is weally, weally yummy”. Yes, my dear, it is. Just please don’t touch mama’s clothes.
But more than their clothing I love their heart. prAna is a company focused on sustainability, quality, and immeasurable ethics. They go above and beyond in all they do; in all they create. And have from the very beginning.
prAna often says, “a brand should give much more than it takes from the world“. And they do! I experienced this first hand when their Portland employees reached out to cheer up my non-napping children. I saw this in their 100% recyclable shipping materials. I read about it in their commitment to sustainability and their forward thinking as they pioneered Fair Trade Certified apparel. Perhaps, most impressive, I’ve felt it in the quality of their products.
Here’s where things get exciting for you … this jacket, the Martina jacket, is the star of my Fall wardrobe. It’s classic, comfortable, and both water and wrinkle resistant. Plus, BEAUTIFUL!
Seeing how fabulous prAna is – you guessed it … you could win a Martina jacket for yourself in your choice of sand, plum red or black!

Although I received complimentary pieces from prAna, they didn’t ask me to share about them. After one too many less than ethical correspondences with various other companies, I couldn’t help but shout prAna’s story from the roof tops. They are doing good, they are doing marvelous things. And all while producing beautiful, top quality apparel. Thank you prAna, I only hope that you inspire many more companies to follow in your footsteps.
