About Us

Sustainable Facecovers and Soft Goods


These principles guide our business and product development.

Sustainability is most important.  First, we make sure every product is made using sustainable materials and processes.

Then focus on functionality.  We carefully design every garment to make it as useful and unique as possible.

After we figure out the sustainability and functionality, we incorporate the latest trends to make every garment as attractive and versatile as possible.


Facecovers and Soft Goods Inspired by Nature

Abode Outside is a small outdoor brand founded in Minnesota.  We have a small, solar powered office and warehouse located 30 minutes outside of Minneapolis. We are a small team, but we have a combined 40+ years of experience working in clothing design and development.

Our goal is to create high-quality, sustainable apparel at a price that is accessible to the average person.  We are stubbornly devoted to quality and sustainability, so our goods are not cheap, but you will see that our prices are fair, especially compared to high-end retailers.

We are also devoted to promoting sustainable business practices and raising awareness about the damage of “fast-fashion” brands.  You might see us driving across country, spreading the good word of sustainable fashion in our 1995 Camper Van.  We use it as a mobile-office and pop-up shop.  Follow allong with us as we travel around the country tesing out our gear and connecting with like-minded folk:


The fashion industry is the 2nd most polluting industry behind Oil & Gas according to the UN Conference on Trade and Development.

We take that seriously.  This means real progress can be made if we change the way we make and buy clothes.

We looked at sustainability at every stage of our product lifecycle from design to shipping.  Check out this infographic to learn about the sustainability measures we already have in place.  We are always looking for ways to improve, so stay tuned.

Of course we want our products to look good. We have a talented Product Developer and Designer incorporating the latest fashion trends into every product. 

More importantly, we want our products to be functional and loaded with as much value as possible for our customers.   We take time to carefully design every product to make it as useful and unique as possible.  The Abode Outside Facecover is our flagship product.  Check out some of the cool features that make it unique:
