Our Story

We are in love with the great outdoors, the adventure, the thrill of packing everything carefully, leaving very early in the morning, hiking, roaming, exploring, and sleeping under the stars.

THE FOUNDER

Hi, I’m Jose. That’s my wonderful and supportive wife, Andrea. I’m the founder and designer of The Ninth Project. Everything you’ll find here was passionately and obsessively designed by me as part of my dream of creating a brand that keeps our mountains green.

THE PASSION BEHIND THE NAME

It was a dark night with a million stars. I was comfortably getting ready for a well-deserved escape into the mountains and a full night under the stars. I put on my headset and hit play. Beethoven No. 9 plays its beautiful choral portion and I dream of the wonderful planet we have.

BEETHOVEN 9TH

“All creatures drink of joy
At natures breast.
Just and unjust
Alike taste of her gift;
She gave us kisses and the fruit of the vine,
A tried friend to the end.”

That bit actually got to me and inspired me to start this project.

#TREESTORATION

60% of the world’s forests are already gone. I wanted to make a difference and so I envisioned a brand that would plant trees with every order, everything we offer to the world would plant a tree and would give life back. That’s how we started our journey to reforest the world and we named it The Ninth Project in virtue of that special night and that beautiful composition by Beethoven.

#ESCAPEOFTEN

We believe in “mountain therapy”. Spending time outdoors can actually make you happy. It can cure depression, anxiety, lack of inspiration and it can provide a true north to anyone’s life. We want to encourage people to escape into the the great outdoors as often as possible.

THE CARE

We decided to always remain a small business so we can provide that special attention to detail others can’t. We only use eco-friendly materials, in-door manufacturing, ethical labor and lots of love; those are our signature values. Every item we offer is unique.

HELP US REFOREST THE WORLD

We are 150% eco-friendly. All our items are made thinking about their impact to our planet. We use significantly less energy and water during manufacturing, our products are very durable, they’re made by adults, sweatshop-free and most important of all… they plant trees.
