Our Story


Stonewear was founded in Boulder, Colorado in 1996 when a talented climber decided to take style into her own hands and design rock climbing clothing specifically for women. We are known best for our core line of pants that are the most comfortable, stylish, and durable pants on the market. Just ask our customers.

Colorado to California

Today, Stonewear's main production facility is located in beautiful Vista, California and our team is comprised of passionate, active individuals who continue to build upon the brand heritage. From our bestselling namesake Classic Stonewear Pant to the new colors and prints we introduce each season, we are committed to sourcing the highest quality, longest lasting fabrics and designing apparel that provides an excellent fit for every woman.

Beautiful & Durable

Our passion is to design timeless clothing that will enhance you, not define you. No matter your level of activity, we have the clothing for you. 

“I'm an outdoor junkie. The fresh air feeds my soul and breaking a sweat by rock climbing, hiking or mountain biking just makes me feel good... Having a balance between warmth, freedom of movement and stay-put fit is really important, and Stonewear Designs has done a pretty nice job of capturing all three.” - Zappos Beyond-the-Box Blog

Our Mission

Stonewear Designs creates apparel that allows you to live the active lifestyle you’ve always imagined. We draw inspiration from our native Boulder climbing community, our new home in Southern California, and the need for really comfortable, women-specific active apparel. Our inspiration derives from every woman’s lifestyles and we understand that an active lifestyle often means chasing after children and grandchildren, running to meetings, and playing with the family pets. Stonewear Designs is able to provide comfortable clothing that you can count on to work with you.
