We are climbers. The idea behind Rafiki was born while we were getting pumped on long rock lines, projecting moves on difficult boulders, walking a wobbly slackline, and enjoying evenings spent sitting by the fire with friends. These are the experiences that inspired our first t-shirts and pants and continue to inspire our entire collection today. We are climbers and nothing will ever change that.
We always prepare Rafiki collections together with other climbers in such a way that we can rely on the individual products and make them pleasant to wear.
When preparing the products, the key for us is a distinctive style, sophisticated cut, a varied variety of colours, functionality and attention to detail. As climbers, we are not indifferent to ecology, which is why we do our best to select and produce materials with respect for the environment.
For a long time, we have been supporting exciting and often unique climbing events such as the Rafiki Water Boulder Games, the Rafiki Urban Boulder Race and other climbing competitions and festivals. We are very happy about the success of the Czech Mountaineering Association`s youth climbing team that we have been supporting for years.
Our ambassadors include experienced climbers as well as interesting personalities and promising aces. Thanks to diverse collaboration with the climbing community, we get important feedback that we project into our work and collections.
Rafiki is no longer just a local brand. You can bump into it while sipping coffee in the winding streets of Arco in Italy, when endlessly practising in the shady forests of Frankenjura in Germany, while improving your personal best in sunny Kalymnos, or when spending the winter climbing in far-away Spain.
