A Spring in our Step

A Spring in our Step

We've got a spring in our step this month because we're launching 2 fresh outdoor and Kootenay-inspired products before our main Spring/Summer launch. We are so excited about them that we just couldn't wait. These are new items that we've never done before. Are you ready? No, really, are you ready? Here goes... RAINCOATSNature is calling and we've got the coat to take you through the elements! Windy, rainy, or cool days, we got you.

HBD KC! It's our 4th Birthday.

Year in Review and Our 4th Birthday     We are celebrating the online shop's 4th Birthday this month! We launched KootzCollective.com on a chilly February morning 4 years ago with nervous excitement and no idea where this brand would take us. Fast forward to today and we've accomplished and learned so many things running this business, with 2020 being one of our biggest tests yet! From working together and maintaining a business under COVID precautions to navigating (multiple!) TM and copyright infringements, we had a lot thrown at us. But hey, it's not the first time we've had major challenges and for...

Welcome to Winter!We are super excited for our long awaited winter line. We were hoping for this to be more of a Fall/Winter launch but COVID played a part in a few delays along the way.

Kootenay Women in Business // Group Blog Feature

We are pleased to share with you our 4 feature blog posts from our winners of the Kootenay Women in Business contest we hosted in late August. If you missed the feature on our winner, Danielle from Sprinkles + Rose Homebakes in Trail, you can read that post here. When developing this contest, we wanted to feature more than one person. It was hard enough to choose one winner so adding an additional random draw was the best way to get more entrepreneurs featured. We have 4 women in business for you today all from various parts of the Kootenays. Each one with...

Kootenay Women in Business // Danielle Abenante of Sprinkles + Rose Homebakes

At the end of August we hosted a Kootenay Women in Business contest. We wanted to feature a group of female business owners and entrepreneurs in a special way. With COVID wreaking havoc on small shops and artists livelihoods, we thought it was a good time to garner some exposure for fellow makers and celebrate our Kootenay roots. We had 41 (awesome) applications to the contest and saw entries from across the Kootenays. From Rossland to Revelstoke, from East to West, and everywhere in between including Kootenay Babes who now live and work beyond the Kootz. All the businesses that were entered were so varied,...
