With a heart that chases adventure we believe in overcoming fears and walking into the unknown.

👋 Oh Hey, Team TK here.

Tera Kaia is a small company with a grassroots start. Our team of outdoor women designs technical underlayers for outdoor adventure. We call it Basewear. 

Our Story

The journey began in 2016. As active outdoorswomen, we got tired of bras that didn’t fit and always fell apart in the wild. So, we hit the sewing machine and made something different. Basewear was born.

These days, Basewear is designed in Bishop, CA by a team of all outdoor women, fit-tested on tons of body types, and wear-tested in our backyard in the Eastern Sierra. Skiing, rock climbing, swimming, backpacking - you name it and someone’s done it in Basewear.

Sustainability guides every decision we make, from designing your Basewear to fit perfectly, to repairing it when it eventually gets loved into the ground. 

Tera Kaia encourages you to celebrate your eccentricities, and let the person you are on the inside shine out.

We say, the wearer is the art and the Basewear is the frame.

Our mission is to redefine the way clothes fit and function so you can get outdoors and be your outside self.

✨ So many people have told us how Basewear has changed their life, and we can’t wait for it to change yours too.

Sincerely, Team TK
