Climb in style with TCA gear
Our TCA branded t-shirts and sweatshirts are now available in the TCA shop. All garments are made using ethically sourced organic cotton. We have a range of colours and branded prints for each TCA climbing centre, including options for kids and adults.
We want people who buy and wear our gear to feel proud that they have invested in a great item of clothing with a conscience – one that will last, that has as little impact on the planet as possible.
The right partner
TCA is committed to sustainable approaches to business. We therefore went to lengths to research sustainable suppliers who were passionate about quality. We are delighted to partner with a company called Egendiz, one of the most ethically advanced factories in the world. They are the first certified organic textile company in Turkey. Our cotton is grown in Turkey, minimising the carbon footprint at the production side. We have invested in a large order to minimise travel emissions from multiple deliveries.
Egendiz is dedicated to sustainability and fair employment practices. They are part of the Fair Wear Foundation, a non-profit organisation whose mission is to see a world where the garment industry supports workers in realising their rights to safe, dignified, properly paid employment.
Fair Wear – labour standards

We already know that TCA has a strong community of climbers. We hope you’ll be as chuffed as we are when you see them. Come and have a feel of the sweatshirt next time you’re in – they’re lush! We can’t wait to see you rocking our new clothing in climbing centres and at crags this year. Tag us if you wear it anywhere cool.
