Forget hand-me-downs. Steamboat’s newest outdoor company, sustainable children’s clothing maker Town Hall Outdoor Co., is hanging its hat on hand-me-ups.
“We didn’t start this company to earn fast and go big,” says co-founder Robin Hall, who launched the company after working for 11 years at Smartwool. “We started it because we love this community, want to give back and keep jobs here, and help teach kids about the environment.” Made from recycled sustainable materials, the company’s products include kids ski jackets, down jackets, ski pants and more — all with a focus on children. “Not many American companies are doing pure kids play,” Hall says. “We’re trying to keep it all in the family and in the Steamboat community.”
