Teragu was founded in 2009 in Mexico City by Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) alumni. It is the product of our passion for design, for outdoor sports, and for the environment.
LET'S MAKE A DIFFERENCE
We aim to offer a vast catalog for people who enjoy exercising, want high-quality products, but also care about the environment and how their products are made. We work closely with our suppliers in order to ensure that labor conditions are right, and that they employ eco-friendly manufacturing processes.
Also, we subdivided the traditional sizes in order provide better fit for any kind of body shape. We like numbers, so we use databases, big data, and algorithms to build our designs.
At the beginning, Andrés and Raúl Castellanos started operations in 2011, only distributing other brands products and as a pure e-commerce in Mexico. They were latter joined by Juan Pablo Álvarez whose creativity and vision enriched our design process.
We love sports. All together, we summon experience in a wide range of sports. Including sports such as surfing, skiing, alpinism, olympic gymnastics, rock climbing, tennis, golf, ice climbing, mountain biking, and others.
We partnered with México Vertical, a Non-Profit Organization with several projects that help develop, protect, restore, and provide more access to climbing areas and mountains in Mexico.
Among the initiatives there is one in Barrancas del Cobre, Chihuahua, where they are working alongside the Raramuri community, one of the most impoverished communities in the Sierra Tarahumara.
They are developing new climbing areas, teaching people about the sport, and promote the place in order to create a new source of income for the community.
