Fall/Winter 2019 Apparel Launch

We are so excited to be back with a fresh batch of apparel for you guys. Much of late August to October we had been radio silent, on the blog and in our newsletters, as we worked behind the scenes to get this specific collection ready. Our summer was so fun and busy, it seemed like fall really snuck up on us. Juggling work and family life, plus putting in quality time towards Kootz Collective, kept us firing on all cylinders!

Kootenay Legends & New Swag

The Kootenay Legend Snapback is here! Our new trucker hats features a woven patch with gold accents paying tribute to the legend of the Kootenay Lake Gold Boulder.
