Another interesting shop in Orchard Central mall is prAna – an outdoor gear store located right underneath Asia’s First Indoor Via Ferrata.
Originally created for climbers and yoga practitioners, prAna has also developed its range of lifestyle apparel for the adventure seeking and active people.
Five-time National Climbing Champion, Mr. Mohd Halil Ngah says, “There aren’t many brands more sought after than prAna amongst the climbing community. They truly understand what climbers and outdoor seekers want. The best climbers in the world wear prAna.”
The range of functional styles has performance materials that are travel-friendly, lightweight and quick drying. Rugged construction, stretchable fabrics and in-built UV protection are features allowing ease of movement and comfort in the sun. Yoga practitioners will find a range of yoga apparel that has enough stretch to hold a flattering fit while complementing a moving body.
PrAna actively looks for new ways to combine sustainable materials and practices into their collection, to reduce the impact on soils, water supplies and other natural resources. Eco-friendly materials used include Organic Cotton and recycled fabric derived from plastic and polyester.
The brand prAna is an ancient Sanskrit word which is often defined as pure energy, vitality of the spirit and most notably ‘breath’. In 2005 prAna launched the Natural Power Initiative with a goal to raise awareness among consumers, partners and industry peers about the benefits of renewable energy. The emphasis is on wind-generated power being a clean, renewable source of energy, which produces no greenhouse gas emissions or waste products.
A comprehensive line of climbing, yoga, lifestyle apparel and accessories for men, women and youth, is available at the Orchard Central store.
