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! We wanted to give you a behind the scenes look at our new line-up of headwear and clothing, some of the...

Evolution of a Brand

Hey all and Happy November. You may have noticed some changes around here. We're here to tell you about our hot off the presses brand update! What an exciting adventure we’ve been on since launching this business. Kootz Rootz initially started for us with a blank website in 2011. Eventually we got our sh*t together and started to develop something around a popular phrase that had become synonymous with being from the Kootenays (and proud of it).
