 Making Moments...

“Nothing is more comforting after a long day of trekking than returning to camp and lighting the lantern.”

Black Lantern was born, in 2011, from our mutual love for the wild outdoors and memories of returning to camp after a long day of trekking. Spending time in the wilderness reminds us how ephemeral life can be. Something truly magical happens every second of the day. If you blink, you can miss it. We find this to be an inspiring lesson. Life can become a race. When we take the time to return to nature, our senses open up. We remember how interconnected we are to our world and to one another. Of course, we are refreshed by the fresh air and unbelievable adventures. 

We bring our passion for the wilderness to you, our fellow adventurers and wilderness wanderers, in the form of high quality products which we design and print ourselves in our shop in Longmont, Colorado. There are no automatic presses here. We personally screen each T-shirt by hand with original designs that represent our devotion and admiration for the outdoor lifestyle. 

When we’re not covered in ink or busy being creative, we trek and camp in the National Parks and wilderness areas around our Colorado home. We want our children to enjoy the same freedom, so we have partnered with the National Parks Foundation. A portion of every purchase you make is dedicated to the preservation of our national parks. 

We welcome you to roam with us. We are still learning where this trail leads - and enjoying the starry nights along the way!
