kora™ was born out of a passion for the mountains and importantly its people. Mountain habitats are fragile and the livelihoods of mountain peoples increasingly precarious; kora™ aims to support economic sustainability and environmental protection in these regions by generating revenues for remote Himalayan mountain communities. We want to share our video journey on the Tibetan plateau where the yaks live with the world, and we also want to be inspired by people taking on big athletic / endurance challenges.
kora™ has identified properties in yak wool highly suitable for base layers worn in the outdoors. Through a rigorous programme of laboratory testing and long-term wear trials, kora™ has developed a range of clothing using its unique, natural, high performance fabric that harnesses and maximises these performance benefits for the outdoor adventurer.

Looks like a super project ...
