Welcome to TiltedGround

    Backcountry skiing, the essential experience!

    The tranquility of skinning up new or familiarly welcoming peaks to get those rewarding views and oh so good turns back down!

    What if one could have the sensation going even in the hottest of summer, wettest of autumn or the coldest of winter

    And in a subtle way remind other skiers about their cool winter as well 

    Story

     I came up with the idea when I found out that I for some reason had managed to stow away the scrap from fitting the climbing skins to the new skis last winter...hmm...why not make a wearable piece of them!

    For sure I have seen some bracelets made out of climbing ropes, but never out of climbing skins. And why not up the game and make it stationary - you can't take it off, that would be cool! 

    But it can't just be attitude, it has to have some soul as well...let's take a warm and discreet brass seal - hand crafted into a shape that can take some letters, preferably sorted into some thoughtful words.

     As with all creative processes it's a long way before the end result have materialized - hopefully in the shape, feel and mood of the initial thought.

    In the pictures I have tried to capture the result of that process, The Making Of...

     Of course I can make one for you as well!

    With one message on the outside and one on the inside - oh yeah!

    And what you choose to call outside is up to you - for me outside is always a little more furry than inside... 


     I have chosen to handle all ordering and transactions on etsy.com since I find that market place suitable for hand crafted goods like this that need some personal attention to each order...please come over and see

    Making the arm-band was such joy so I decided to design some T-shirts prints on the same theme
