Cariloha Introduces Bamboo Knit Throw Blankets

18 Dec

cariloha-bamboo-knit-throw-blankets

Cariloha this week introduced the latest addition to its bamboo bedding line, the bamboo knit throw blanket, which is made entirely of ultra-soft, eco-friendly bamboo viscose.

Designed by Cariloha’s Product Team, the knit throw blankets come in the same color story as Cariloha’s plush throw blanket and are available exclusively at Cariloha stores and online next month.

A great blanket is essential for cozying up by the fire for a good read on a cold winter’s night, and this blanket is the one. Soft, sustainable, and just the right size for wrapping you up in cloud-like comfort, it’s an attractive gift for the natural-luxury comfort seeker.

It exceeds the softness of cashmere and offers even more warmth, odor resistance and durability. With its popular Herringbone pattern and compact size, it also makes for a welcome travel companion.

KNIT THROW BLANKET:
• Available under Cariloha’s Free Drop-Shipping Program
• Dimensions: 50” x 70”
• Retail Price: $89
• Made from 100% Viscose from Bamboo
• Machine Wash and Tumble Dry Low
• Three Modern Colors – Sand, Harbor Gray, Ocean Blue

This knit blanket is lighter than the plush bamboo blanket, which makes traveling with it much easier. It provides much-desired comfort on a long flight, especially on a red-eye flight when you want to get some sleep.

“Although adults have (mostly) done away with their “blankie,” this luxuriously soft throw blanket bridges their social need to be an adult with their inner desire to still be a child at heart,” said Brian Ciccotelli, Cariloha HQ Sales Training Manager. “The knit throw will encourage couples to do more things together (movie night at home, picnics, etc.) To them, it’s more than a blanket, it’s a key to more time spent together, to a happier life.

Here are the Top 5 Ideas for using the Bamboo Knit Blanket (voted on by Cariloha HQ employees):
1. Cuddle up to watch a movie at home.
2. Lay out under the night sky to watch for (and wish on) shooting stars.
3. Lay it on the floor and let your baby crawl around on the softness.
4. Take it on a picnic in the park.
5. Take it with you on road trips and flights for extra comfort while you sleep.

“It’s hard to take your bamboo sheets out of the bedroom, but the throw blanket can go everywhere,” said Ciccotelli.

With winter weather upon us, you don’t want to be left out in the cold without a knit throw blanket. Cariloha bamboo knit blankets are hypoallergenic and softer than wool, cotton or cashmere throws, making them a must have for any household.

    Cariloha Launches Fall-Winter Bamboo Fitness Wear Line

    21 Nov

    Cariloha-Bamboo-Fitness-Wear-Fall-2014

    Cariloha this week launched its fall and winter Bamboo Fit line for men and women – all fitness wear items are made from eco-friendly bamboo-fabric blends and designed by Cariloha’s Product Team. Available exclusively at Cariloha stores and online, this season’s fitness wear includes several base layer and exterior layer options, along with a full selection of tops and bottoms that give customers more choices for their various fitness needs.

    Fitness and active lifestyle fans alike who are looking for all-natural active wear instead of exclusively synthetic active wear will find it in the Cariloha Bamboo Fit line, which features naturally odor resistant, moisture-wicking bamboo-blended fabrics.

    This newest line includes new colors and styles for the following clothing options: Women’s Racerback Cross Tanks, Women’s Athletic V-Neck, Women’s Yoga Tank, Women’s Fitted Yoga Pants, Women’s Athletic Legging, Women’s Athletic Cropped Pant, Women’s Headband, Men’s Athletic Crew, Men’s Core Sleeveless, Men’s Performance Jersey Polo, Men’s Training Shorts, Men’s Fitted Long Sleeve, Men’s Track Pants, Men’s Training Shorts, Men’s Training Pants, and Men’s Compression Shorts

    “We’ve purposely created fabric blends that maximize Cariloha’s comfort and bamboo-benefit standards without compromising the structure, durability and elasticity that you expect in outstanding fitness wear,” said Scott Brady, Cariloha AVP of Communications. “The new styles are also meant to pair together and feature the same color story that works throughout the entire fitness line.”

    “Ultra-soft, refreshingly cool fabrics like Cariloha’s are typically found in most active wear clothing styles, but the Bamboo Fit line is unlike any other in today’s market because it’s made from bamboo,” said Brady. “Unlike exclusively synthetic fabrics, our bamboo-blended clothing wicks moisture away from the body and helps prevent odors naturally, without using chemicals or pesticides to do so, and still remains softer and 3 degrees cooler than other non-eco-friendly fabrics.”

    Customers looking to enhance their bamboo clothing wardrobe and lifestyle will appreciate having a broader selection of all-natural clothing styles to work out in. “Careful consideration has gone into the line,” said Brady. “We market tested these fitness styles in select Cariloha stores, and the results indicated a high demand for soft, natural alternatives to fitness wear, which we’re now proud to provide in all Cariloha stores worldwide.”

    Fans of the bamboo active wear can expect new additions to Cariloha’s Bamboo Fit line approximately twice per year. Currently, the clothing line makes up about 15 percent of Cariloha’s bamboo product mix and takes up about the same retail space in a typical 1,000-square-foot Cariloha store.

    Bamboo Fit Features:
    • Performance-weight fabric
    • Naturally odor resistant for extended wear
    • Athletic sewing details with reinforced seams that offer durability and style
    • Versatile garments that can be worn for first-layer comfort or as a top layer for more protection
    • 4-way stretch for comfort and mobility; lightweight, wicks moisture and regulates body temps keeping you dry and comfortable in all weather conditions

    Cariloha Bamboo Fit products come with a 90-day quality guarantee. If the fitness wear doesn’t live up to the customers’ expectations, Cariloha will replace them without reservation. The tops and bottoms are machine washable and tumble dried low, so maintenance is easy and worry-free. They get even softer after washing.

    Cariloha Bamboo Sheets Take a Bedroom to a Higher Level of Comfort

    7 Nov

    Cariloha Bamboo sheets continue to attract customers seeking the best in naturally luxurious linens. Not only are they softer than other natural and synthetic fabrics, but they also keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer thanks to bamboo’s inherent thermal-regulating properties. They’re extremely helpful for people who suffer from night sweats, skin irritations or sensitivities. If that wasn’t enough, bamboo sheets and towels are odor resistant and good for the environment, too. But, don’t take our word for it…

    Cariloha Bamboo Sheets

    By Adventures of Mommyhood

    While it’s not MY job to tell you what should be included in your bedroom or nighttime routine, I do feel compelled to let you know what goes on between MY sheets these days….

    Such. Amazing. Sleep. Wow.

    I thought I was going to have to make a continuation of my series that was “Flippin’ in Flakes” or something. I felt like we’d never be sleeping in our own, new bed in our own new house. Let alone sleeping so well! We’re there now. It all started.

    While we were strolling down the street in Juneau, Alaska this summer and my son was on a “scavenger hunt for treasures,” one of the ways we found FREE fun in cruise towns. All those coupons for trinkets that get you in to stores make fantastic treasures for kids and a great afternoon of family fun wandering around town! Well, during one of our stops, the task was to “feel the difference” between your run-of-the-mill cotton sheets, nicer Egyptian cotton sheets, and Bamboo sheets. WOW.

    The moment that my fingertips grazed the bamboo sheets I knew I needed one day to roll around and dream sweet dreams on this textile. It was cool to the touch, soft as the best “lovies” and cuddle blankets, but also light and I wanted to experience more! Where were we? We were exiting the Cariloha store in the downtown area of Franklin Street.

    Caribbean style + Hawaiian aloha = pure bliss!

    So naturally, a few months later while planning my Flippin’ for Fall Series, I wanted to find a few unique embellishments, if you will, that can take a ho-hum room to the next level and make it a special, cozy, amazing space in your home. I don’t have a budget like the HGTV shows, so I had to be creative and write realistically, since most of us do not have that kind of monetary freedom! That meant cozy as it might be, I wouldn’t be including a jacuzzi tub in the master bedroom plans.

    This goal could however be accomplished with some pieces that were plush, lux accessories but were also functional items that one would use and could afford to implement into a room design. Those perfect few items included bamboo sheets, a luxurious towel set, and even a little extra bonus for mom and all her hard work: cozy socks!

    I washed the sheets that had a bit of a vinegar-esque smell from in the new package and they were incredibly quick drying. They do wrinkle easily, but for me being really pregnant wrestling with king-size anything could do just as much damage as a dryer! So, pardon a few wrinkles, I ironed the set once, very carefully with a slightly damp towel barrier – you do have to treat these nicely, low heat, wash on cold or cool, etc. But they come out feeling wonderful and are easy to care for. I love that they are cool to the touch, since I’m always warm. I am constantly flipping my pillow to take advantage of the “cool side.” Even in the dead of winter. So the combination of bamboo sheets and a down comforter make the ultimate pairing!

    The bamboo sheets are smooth and soft, silky against your legs and arms. I was hesitant to use them on our “family bed” — but with pull ups and the mattress protector, I guess there is only so much we can do! We’re taking the chance since these linens are too good to pass up! The colors are zen, calming. We chose Sage, but there is also a light blue and a neutral color. They are a tad slippery — which I love! I was able to get a nice, snug fit on the mattress and they are true to size.

    Cariloha is a one-stop shop for all things soft, sustainable and stunning for home, bath, and even your own body! We have a king-size bed now that acts as our family bed for now, though the kids room does have bunk beds that are occasionally used, and we have a full-size bed in our guest/dad room. Yes, my husband gets the boot sometimes (usually self-imposed) so that he can get more sleep before work!

    We can now feel like we are treating our guests to an experience akin to a Hilton or Sandals (at least with the offering of our linens and bathroom textiles!) That is where the resort experience usually ends, with the appearance of crazy tots and park playdates…but…for a few glimmering moments, they might be expecting that instead of a drooling kiddo coming through the door, it could be housekeeping or a spa attendant!

    Cariloha can help you create a spa ambiance in your own home with our plush, quick-drying bath towels made of viscose from bamboo. These soft, simple and sustainable bath towels and bath sheets are highly absorbent and will give you an ultra-soft feel every time you step in or out of the shower.

    With a variety of colors and sizes to choose from, your bathroom will match your style and feel just as good. Not only are these luxurious bath towels more comfortable than anything you’ve ever felt, but they’re also better for the environment because they’re made from bamboo viscose, one of the most sustainable, renewable resources on the planet. Don’t take our word for it, though. Read this unbiased review of Cariloha bamboo bath towels and bath sheets for yourself:

    Cariloha Bamboo Bath Towels

    Cariloha Plush Bath Towels and Sheets
    By Pawsitive Living

    Bathrooms are considered a high traffic room. We tend to our physical needs, put on makeup, fuss with our hair, and of course bathe and shower. If we reflect a little deeper, towels would be by far the hardest working item in our home. Just think about what the towel has to cope with, drying, patting, buffing, absorbing, cleaning, blotting, wiping…and so on. The last thing we want is a rough fabric that’s abrasive and harsh on our tender bodies. We want soft and cozy!

    Cariloha is the creator of a fabulous selection of gorgeous eco-friendly bamboo products. Bamboo has antimicrobial, anti-fungal and antibacterial qualities. It’s absorbent, highly breathable, anti-static, and great for sensitive skin. It’s also incredibly soft to the touch and gentle to the body.

    Cariloha Bath Sheets are ginormous and the epitome of all that is lavish and plush. The Bath Towels are equally as abundant, but slightly smaller. All their towels are made from a blend of rayon from renewable bamboo and cotton to create an extra smooth texture. They’re plump and deliciously smooth and supple on the weary body. They absorb moisture quickly and feel so warm and snugly. I’m so happy they’re snag resistant; I don’t know how many towels I’ve caught my ring on, leaving it frayed. Considering the various sizes, the towels are fairly lightweight so even little kids can enjoy the pure joy of its welcoming wrap. They come in several solid colors as well as white with decorative colored strips.

    The Towel Sets offer the same high standards as the bath sheets. The set includes a bath towel, a hand towel, and a wash cloth. I personally love towel pieces to have color and pattern harmony, it just feels better when everything is congruent. If you have several members of your family using the same bathroom, having the different color sets is ideal, they each have their own personal towels. They are also great for students and perfect for taking to the gym or pool. Using Cariloha towels is a glorious experience.

    Hot or Cold, Cariloha Bamboo Fitness Wear is Performance Ready

    10 Oct

    Landon-Faulkner-Bamboo-Fitness-Wear

    If you’re like us at Cariloh HQ, we enjoy exercising, but we especially enjoy exercising comfortably. Many people (especially women) avoid going to the gym because they don’t want to look out of place (they assume everyone at the gym will be regulars and they’re afraid they’ll stick out). This is a real concern that you need to overcome. One main legitimate concern is “What do I wear?” When we’re demonstrating our Bamboo Fit line, we always make sure to mention how these products are “in style” and “trendy” and “everyone is wearing something like this… ours are just more comfortable because they’re made from ultra-soft, eco-friendly bamboo.”

    You don’t need to take our word for it, though. Read this unbiased, field-tested review of Cariloha’s Bamboo Fitness Wear by ultra-runner and outdoor adventurer, Landon Faulkner…

    Cariloha’s Bamboo Fit Review
    By Landon Faulkner, Ultimate Runner and Adventurer

    Finding the right fit for all of your fitness apparel needs is a whole lot easier when you shop Cariloha’s Bamboo Fit line. I’ve been sponsored by Cariloha for a few months now which has given me a great opportunity to test Cariloha’s Bamboo Fit line in many different situations.

    Why Bamboo?

    First off, lets talk briefly about why the heck bamboo is so awesome (for a full look at the benefits of bamboo read this prior post). Bamboo is an all-natural and renewable resource that has inherent qualities that are perfect for a fitness apparel line. Some of the great benefits of bamboo include; durable, soft, oder free and naturally wicking. Basically said, bamboo is a pretty rad wonder product.

    Performance Ready

    Whether you’re hitting the gym, running the track, or hitting the trails, Cariloha’s Bamboo Fit line is performance ready. Bamboo is naturally wicking and odor free. Because bamboo is a natural product unlike polyester it doesn’t easily harbor the bacteria that creates odor. Cariloha’s bamboo products also wick, which for me is great. I sweat like a crazy person and having a product that wicks well is very important to me.

    Cariloha’s Babmoo Fit line is truly performance ready. One of my favorite aspects of the fit line is the softness of the bamboo. I’ve never worn such soft products, especially not fitness products. I suppose this could be a downside on those early mornings, however, when nothing feels better than some soft clothes and a warm bed instead of the trail or gym.

    In the Heat or In the Cold

    I have worn Cariloha’s Bamboo Fit apparel from hot California summer afternoons to cold Utah mornings. During hot runs the bamboo has been able to wick very efficiently. My crew top will look soaking wet from sweat, but it doesn’t feel wet on my skin. The bamboo breathes really well and has helped keep me cool on the those triple digit runs.

    Cariloha’s Bamboo Fit line also preforms well in the cooler weather. They even offer a fitted long sleeve top that is great for those cooler morning workouts. Still breathable and lightweight this top also help keep you warm and pushing hard even when it’s cold.

    cariloha-bamboo-golf-towel

    Cariloha this week launched its promotional bamboo golf towel to Cariloha stores worldwide. Golf towels are made from Cariloha’s soft, sustainable, eco-friendly bamboo viscose fabric, which was developed by Cariloha’s Product and Design Teams.

    “The bamboo golf towel is designed to be useful, durable and softer than any other golf towel on the market today,” said Scott Brady, Cariloha VP of Communications. “Its highly absorbent, soft bamboo fabric easily removes grass, dirt, sand and mud from golfers’ clubs and can basically take on any punishment the golf course can dish out.”

    Cariloha’s proprietary viscose-from-bamboo material comes completely washable and colorfast for extended use. Retail price is $25 and is free in participating Cariloha stores with any $100 qualifying purchase.

    “Not only is the Cariloha bamboo golf towel a great promotional item for our stores,” said Brady. “But it also helps customers complete a Cariloha bamboo golf set, which could include a bamboo polo, bamboo socks, bamboo golf tees, bamboo hat, and now a bamboo golf towel – makes a great gift.”

    Thanks to bamboo’s naturally occurring properties, it stays 3 degrees cooler than cotton fabrics, is hypoallergenic, odor resistant, moisture wicking and highly breathable.

    Cariloha bamboo golf towels come with a lifetime quality guarantee. If the towels don’t live up to customers’ expectations, Cariloha will replace them free.
