The Kootenays is a magical region of dense pine forests, pristine glacier fed lakes, epic mountain ranges and natural hot springs. This is where we grew up and where we draw inspiration for our work. Kootz Culture is all about good folk, good fun, and the natural landscape that binds us. It's apparel and goods that are the epitome of your laid back lifestyle. We are a sister-sister team of creative designers who love nature, creative styling, and design.
In 2013, we were both working in Alberta and brimming with creative energy. One thing we could both agree on was that we missed home... growing up surrounded by the outdoors on Kootenay Lake, and being part of the small town vibe. This project is a culmination of creative design and local love.
We are strong advocates of other small Canadian-based businesses and female entrepreneurs - we are working Moms! We work with folks all over Western Canada on various creative projects. Visit our collaborations page for details.
