E9 was founded in 1998 by former world boulder champion Mauro Calibani. The project was born in the midst of mesmerising Meschia – one of the most amazing places for bouldering in Italy. E9 evolved in the middle of this chestnut forest from Mauro’s necessity of having a creative outlet and experimenting with new movements on rock. From an insatiable hunger of being different, E9’s aesthetics are composed of creativity, simplicity, functionality and attention to details. These are the main ingredients in everything we make. E9 tees, pants, hats and beanies are made in Italy and are perfect for climbing, other physical activities and everyday life.
