    We are grateful for the opportunity to own and run a business as a husband and wife team and to be able to work with great people all over the world to develop and produce our products. From the beginning of this adventure, it has been our goal to make a difference in the lives of the people we work with through the choices we make as a company. We appreciate you stopping by our site to see what we’re up to. If you’d like to get in touch please drop us a line, hi@ambler.co

We Believe

We are a family-owned company located in Nelson, BC. We pull inspiration from our beautiful surroundings, testing and tweaking our products to weather any element.

It all began in the fall of 1995 with ten styles of handmade fleece hats and a local craft fair. Today, our intent remains the same – to make quality products for our friends to enjoy. We’ve perfected fit, function and design with our friends in mind…whether we’ve met them yet or not.

We are rooted in collaboration, adventure and a celebration of the unique. But we want to do more than just make great stuff. We want to make a positive impact in the lives of those making it, the ones wearing it, and everyone in between.
