Columbia Sportswear Company portfolio brand Prana is expanding its European distribution network and has also added a new international sales team.
As per a Prana press release, for more than 20 years, Prana apparel has had a strong following in the European climbing and yoga practicing communities.
With its broad range of lifestyle, swim, and active apparel, prAna now has its goals set on expansion in Europe.
Founded in 1993, Prana started with apparel, catering to the clothing needs of yoga practitioners and climbers.
The company’s purposeful and stylish apparel quickly began to attract a wide audience, appealing to all sorts of people pursuing their passions, whether on the water, mat, rock, trail, or street.
As its appeal grew, Prana remained committed to weaving sustainable practices into its operations and supply chains.

“Prana has a rich history in the European marketplace, with solid roots in the climbing and yoga communities,” Sasha Dietschi-Cooper, VP of Global Sales said.
