Behind The Designs: 2015 Bamboo Scarf Launch

13 Feb

Cariloha recently launched its 2015 Bamboo Scarf Collection, which offers beautiful, bold colors and irresistible softness. These new trendy scarves were hand-picked and created by Cariloha’s Product and Design Teams. Their goal was to provide customers with a stylish variety of scarves that could become staples in a customer’s every day wardrobe. The scarves’ lightweight fabrics and contrasting colors meld seamlessly with any outfit.

To more fully appreciate these bamboo scarves, we’d like to share the inspiration and process behind them from the perspective of Cariloha’s Product Design Manager, Aimee O.

Where do you look for personal design inspiration? 

I don’t look to just one source for inspiration. I keep an eye on the market and runways for upcoming trends and products. I find so much inspiration while being outdoors. Gardening and hiking can be credited for some of my greatest inspirational moments. Something about nature’s color and textures mixed with the calm feeling of these environments really sets my creativity free. I tend to incorporate much of my personal style into the Cariloha product design. I love to find inspiration in that unexpected piece; a bold new print to incorporate into our line, with a color that walks the line of being too bold, but somehow finds its home nestled among the Cariloha product assortment.

The photography/design team finds inspiration from the products themselves. These scarves are easy to fall in love with. They’re so easy to pair with a basic T-shirt, blazer, and your favorite jeans. To capture the beauty of these scarves, we gained outside inspiration from the Art Nouveau area. We examined each scarf individually and listed out what elements (books, drawings, watercolors, pastels, etc.) to describe each story.


What inspires you in the color-selection process?

The outdoors draw more inspiration than anything else. The colors and textures are nothing short of breathtaking. I often pull a color story from a mountain top, a sunset, or a simple image of the blue ocean.

What is your process for hand-selecting these fabric blends?

With this line, I found it very important to create a collection of light-weight, fashion-forward scarves that are new and refreshing for Cariloha. I desired to incorporate a style that can blend and be worn with any piece from the Cariloha bamboo product line. You can do so many different things with fabric blends these days, however, some of my favorite pieces are 100% Viscose from Bamboo. There is nothing more relaxing than wrapping one of these babies around your neck. Capturing the textures of these bamboo scarves in a photograph is so effortless.


What captured your eye with these new designs?

What captured my eye the most was the color and saturation of each individual dye and print. Each style has it’s own voice, and I love how different each one is. The dip dye of the Pashminas are subtle and soft and lend themselves to the flow of the fabrication. The Nautical Stripes are quiet and understated even with a bold stripe pattern they manage to be soft and subtle. The Geo Infinity is a bold statement, and I absolutely love how forward this print is. The flow of each individual fabric is so appealing. Adding various sketches, watercolors, plants, books, pencils, and pens around these scarves resonates softness and the colors of each scarf was brilliantly planned. It made it easy to share the story of their creation.

 

You’ve selected staples for Cariloha, but what makes this launch different? What’s the inside story in this collection?

We’re so excited to introduce these colors and prints. This introduces new sizes and styles of scarves to fit any aspect of life. This was the most important to us. I wanted to introduce a variety of different scarves, not just colors and prints. These scarves can be worn in so many different ways and can be worn with virtually any outfit. Cariloha scarves are the fastest and easiest way to dress up an outfit. This collection is what every Cariloha customer has been waiting for, and you need to get your hands on each and every piece.


How do you like to wear these bamboo scarves?

You can wear the geometric scarf with anything! From a maxi dress to dressing up a basic tee, these colors and prints have the ability to take any outfit to the next level within seconds!

The functionality of the Pashminas make them a great buy. We often style the Jade Pashmina,  Charcoal Scoop Tee, dark jeans, Sorel boots, and a black blazer. You can wear them in so many different ways. Nothing like wrapping up in a bamboo Pashmina during a walk through the park at the end of date night.

Six Must-Have, Eco-Friendly Souvenirs from the Caribbean

5 Feb

Cariloha-Bamboo-Beach-Bag-Dress

What’s more relaxing than a Caribbean vacation? White sandy beaches, crystal clear water, and a cool island breeze work together to elevate your mind and body to a whole other level of leisure. If and when you emerge from your tropical stupor long enough to remember your loved ones who are stuck back at home, you’ll probably want to bring them the perfect Caribbean souvenir.

But where to start? Even though it’s a vacation, you still want to spend your money responsibly. For many people, part of responsible gift-giving means thinking ahead to consider the impact a gift might have on the environment. If you include yourself among them, take a look at these amazing eco-friendly Caribbean souvenirs.

1. Color-Changing Tee

While a T-shirt may seem like a generic gift, Del Sol’s color-changing tee is entirely original. The company uses organic photochromic dyes to create beautiful graphic T-shirts that bloom into color when exposed to sunlight. They’re reasonably priced at $25, which is a steal considering they’re both fashionable and novel. The best part? You can order them right from Del Sol’s website, rather than having to worry about fitting them into your already overstuffed suitcase.

2. Bamboo Coaster Set

Products made from bamboo are all the rage now within the eco-friendly textile market, and for good reason. Bamboo grows quickly and abundantly without the need for harsh chemicals or pesticides, and the final products are biodegradable. A beautiful coaster set created from bamboo, made by the Caribbean Trading Company of Palmer, Puerto Rico, makes an elegant gift to anyone who fancies themselves environmentally conscious.

3. Bamboo Cutting Board

That special chef in your life could use a durable, sustainable cutting board. This board comes adorned with a beautifully detailed seahorse icon and includes a cocktail fork in the shape of a spiral shell. Like the coaster set, a cutting board made from bamboo is gentle on the environment. Once the board has reached the end of its usefulness or simply gets replaced, it can go into a landfill and break down easily, or it can be repurposed into a totally new item.

4. Bamboo Clothing

Keeping with the bamboo theme, clothing made from the plant is a wonderful gift as well. Not only is it eco-friendly, but it’s kind to the wearer as well. Bamboo clothing is softer than the softest cotton, with a silky sheen for a luxurious flair. The material moves freely to complement your shape and is very durable. It’s hypoallergenic and boasts odor-resistant properties that aid in preventing the spread of certain infections and irritations. Our very own Cariloha shirts are high quality but affordable, and they come with all the benefits bamboo clothing has to offer.

5. Bamboo Picture Frames

This gift is ideal for anyone, including yourself. You can bring back these bamboo picture frames and use them to display your favorite vacation moments, or you could still gift them to a loved one. Either way, their rich detail and color will make them a standout among anyone’s picture collection. Like the cutting board and coaster set, this item is great for repurposing if you decide to replace it.

6. Bamboo Beach Towel

The bamboo plant is super absorbent, and that trait carries over when it’s processed into textile material. This makes a bamboo beach towel especially good at its job. It easily absorbs moisture and wicks away water so you can dry off quicker. A great gift for anyone who loves to have fun in the sun by the pool or at the beach.

These are just a few examples of the kinds of souvenirs you can use to wow your loved ones without being harsh on the environment. Your loved ones will be grateful that you thought of them during your vacation to the Caribbean, and even more impressed by your concern for our planet.

Five Ways to Fall in Love with Bamboo this Valentine’s

30 Jan

cariloha-bamboo-bed-Ivory-Sheets

Cariloha is driven by a comfort, eco-conscious lifestyle. Everything we do is inspired by the essence and energy of the islands. We blend style, comfort and self-expression into every fabrication we makes. As the only retailer selling exclusively apparel, bedding and bath goods made from bamboo, we’re ultimately seeking to provide you with the very best in natural luxury.

With this upcoming Valentine’s Day holiday, keep in mind the following five simple ways that you and your loved ones can fall in love with bamboo softness…

1. Wear Your Heart on Your ‘Bamboo’ Sleeve

Have you felt the difference between the softness of a Cariloha Bamboo shirt and a commonplace shirt in today’s market? Cariloha’s crazy-soft bamboo clothing is as soft as silk, moisture wicking, and 3 degrees cooler than cotton. Bamboo is also naturally hypoallergenic and odor resistant. It’s considered the most renewable resource on the planet, too. All Cariloha bamboo clothing is guaranteed satisfaction for quality, durability and supreme softness. Now that’s something we can all fall in love with.

2. Love Deeply, Live Luxuriously, and Rest Comfortably in Bamboo Sheets

Take it from our friend Ruth over at Viva Veltoro, and cuddle up with your loved one in Cariloha’s luxuriously soft bamboo sheets. “These sheets are luxurious in every sense of the word! Bamboo is remarkably soft and smooth and, in my opinion, completely ideal as a bed sheet because of its natural qualities. Bamboo is 3 degrees cooler than cotton, so they feel quite cool when you first slip into them. Don’t they sound great year round? I love cool sheets and warm blankets in the winter, and staying cool in warmer weather is going to be easier in this bamboo. This material also wicks away moisture from your body, and I can completely attest to this after sleeping on these for a few weeks. Being pregnant, I’ve woken up in the middle of the night quite sweaty and warm, but since we’ve switched to these Cariloha Bamboo sheets, I haven’t woken up uncomfortably once. We’re sleeping so well and really enjoying the smooth and unique feel of these sheets on our bed!”

3. Heart Something Soft, Simple & Sustainable

Cariloha looks at bamboo as something we can all live with. Everyone who wears and uses Cariloha Bamboo goods is intrinsically giving back to a more eco-friendly world. Because bamboo is the fastest-growing plant in the world, its environmental benefits are remarkable. Bamboo can replace or indirectly decrease consumption of three critically scarce resources: wood, metal, and oil.

In a time when global warming, depletion of resources and deforestation threatens the balance of the delicate natural world and its divers eco-systems, Cariloha Bamboo is making a name for itself as a viable solution and resource that’s both remarkably useful and environmentally friendly. Bamboo horticulturists from all over the world consider bamboo to be one of the most sustainable, renewable resources known on the planet. This is evidenced in some species of bamboo that have been known to grow up to four feet a day and reach maturity within two years – a mere fraction of the 50-60 years it takes for traditional timber to grow to maturity and become ready for harvesting. After harvesting bamboo, it rapidly self-propagates and new bamboo forests quickly spring up, preventing deforestation and soil erosion that is common with other types of timber and plant harvests.

4. Spoil Your Sweetheart & Treat Her Feet to Bamboo Socks

Indulge in bamboo softness this Valentine’s. Rock ‘em, Sock ‘em, Get out and Walk ‘em! Cariloha bamboo socks were made to be soft, cool, clean and green – that’s what you’re gonna get. So, don’t sweat it. When it comes to odor-free, moisture-wicking socks, Cariloha socks walk the talk. Their unique bamboo fiber blend wicks moisture away from the skin for cool, dry wear. They’re so sockin’ soft!

5. Show Some Bamboo Love with Odor-Resistant, Ultra-Soft Bamboo Towels

Cariloha’s earth-friendly bath towel combines luxury softness and bacterial resistance into one amazing towel at an affordable price. They’re ultra soft, naturally antibacterial and highly absorbent, too. Made from a blend of rayon from renewable bamboo and cotton, Cariloha’s bamboo towels are perfect for home, gym, car, pool or spa.

Still Trying to Keep Your New Year Resolutions?

23 Jan

cariloha-bamboo-fitness-wear

Now that we’re well into the New Year, you may or may not be going strong with your goals and resolutions. If your 2015 resolutions are long gone or if you’re looking to make some adjustments, here are six realistic New Year’s resolutions ideas to consider from one of our favorite product reviewers. Who knows, they may just carry you through an entire year…

6 Realistic New Year’s Resolution Ideas
By Having Fun Saving

Do you make New Year’s resolutions? I did for years, then one of two things would happen:
• I would forget all about them.
• I would break one by February 1 and get discouraged and stop trying.

I really don’t think that the idea of New Year’s Resolutions was made to make us mad, sad, unhappy, or discouraged. I think the idea was to make you a better YOU, to see where you may be able to change something or add in something that makes you HAPPIER.

That being said, I thought I would share some realistic New Year’s resolution ideas. Because, if you’re like me, you haven’t committed to yours yet, or you just haven’t made them at all.

Enjoy Today

We all worry about what tomorrow will bring, what will happen in 5 years, 10 years, etc. But, do you ever actually stop and enjoy THIS VERY MOMENT? It’s great to plan for the future, but if you are not careful, you are going to miss some of the most magical moments that are happening RIGHT NOW. How many times have you been playing on your phone or watching TV when your friend or child said “Did you see that?” or “Didn’t hear what I said?” And yes, sometimes they are just telling us that they burped, but other times they are telling you that they love you, or that they hit the ball at baseball for the 1st time, or that they weren’t scared when they rode the bus home that day, or that they really need you to listen right now. Don’t miss today worrying about tomorrow. Enjoy now, enjoy this moment, enjoy TODAY.

Smile More

Did you know that it takes more muscles to frown than smile? Not to mention, your smile is beautiful!

Make Some Time for You

I know, I know, this is definitely easier said than done. I am not telling you that you have to schedule an hour a day, or even a week for just YOU right now. It just may not be possible. But, you need some time…even if it’s just a moment…that is just for YOU. Years ago when I felt like I lost ME – after I quit my job to say home with our son, and I was adjusting to all the changes in my life, I went to see a counselor. I needed someone to talk to that was outside of my circle. I explained how I felt and I will NEVER forget this analogy he told me…in fact, if you ask any of my friends, they will tell you I have told them it on several occasions.

When you’re on an airplane, the flight attendants tell you that you have to put on your air mask first before helping others. The reason they tell you that is, if you stop breathing, you can’t help ANYONE. You can’t always help others without stopping to allow yourself to breathe. If you aren’t “breathing,” you aren’t helping anyone. Not your kids, not your spouse, not your friends, not your family…and most importantly…NOT YOU. Learn to breathe.

Commit to Eating Better

Are you rolling your eyes? Doesn’t everyone make this goal? Yes, probably. But, I am asking you to keep your goal realistic so that YOU CAN DO IT! I can’t give up chocolate, I just can’t, that’s me being honest. So, that won’t be on my “eating better” list. I am a snacker. I love to snack, it’s also something I can’t give up. So, that won’t be on my “eating better” list. BUT, snacking BETTER is. Instead of potato chips or nachos by my computer or on my plate or in the kids’ lunchboxes, you will find snacks like Pretzel Crisps or Simply7 Snacks. Just because something is better for you doesn’t mean that there is no taste!

Exercise

More? Less? Better? Longer? Well, that’s up to you. I strive to work out 4-5 times a week, so I don’t want to add in any additional days really. But, I do want to exercise more. Run a bit longer, go to Jazzercise then go for a walk or bike ride with the kids later in the day. Wear my Bamboo Fit Performance Apparel from Cariloha more – not only because I love the look and feel, but because it means I am making a better ME by exercising. Again, the key here is to be realistic with your goals. Don’t say that you want to run 5 miles a day 5 days a week when you have never done that before. Just strive for something that will make you a better you. Not a different you, just a better you.

Do Something for You That You Usually Don’t Do

This can be something really simple. For me, it’s simply putting on mascara a few times a week. I work at home, so I never really think about make-up, but I think it takes me less than 30 seconds to swipe on mascara, and I can definitely tell you that it makes me feel a bit better. Put on lip gloss for no particular reason. Wear your hair down. Wear your favorite boots on a Monday instead of a date night. Wear a dress to the bus stop. Shower before lunch. Go to bed early one night. Stay up late watching movies one night.

And one last suggestion, once you come up with your New Year’s resolutions, write them down or put them in your phone. That way you can glance at them from time to time.

Treat Your Feet to Bamboo Softness with Cariloha’s New Bamboo Socks

22 Jan

cariloha-bamboo-socks-spring-2015

Cariloha this week launched its spring 2015 bamboo sock collection for men and women – all socks 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 sock line showcases bold, new colors and designs that feature even more bamboo benefits and comforts than any previous sock line.

“Fans of comfortable, stylish socks who are also looking for all-natural sock alternatives instead of exclusively synthetic socks will find a pleasing variety of options in Cariloha’s bamboo sock collection,” said Scott Brady, Cariloha AVP of Communications. “They’re knit together with odor-resistant bamboo-fabric blends and have an equal measure of cozy and stylish.”

All bamboo sock styles feature hand-linked toe seams for a seamless bulk-free toe, reinforced plush foot bed and toe for added durability and plush comfort, and compression-knit band on the sock arch for even more support and comfort.

This line includes new colors and styles in the following sock options:
Women’s Boot Socks: Striped Teal/Lime, Lattice Brown/Red, Lattice Aqua/Blue, Striped Aqua/Blue, Striped Brown/Red and Lattice Teal/Lime (Retail Price: $15)
Women’s Trouser Socks: Black, Navy and Ivory (Retail Price: $12)

All new socks are offered in two sizes – Women’s (S/M 5-8), Women’s (L/XL 8-12), Men’s (S/M 7-10) and Men’s (L/XL 10-13).

“Bamboo breathes easier than exclusively cotton-based socks,” said Brady. “Your feet stay cooler when exercising or just walking around. The bamboo naturally fights odor-causing bacteria and wicks away moisture, so your feet sweat and stink less when wearing bamboo socks.”

Cariloha’s bamboo socks have carried Cariloha-sponsored Miles 2 Give runners for 3,000+ miles across the USA and 10,000+ miles around the USA in 2013 and 2014. “Of all the socks I’ve ever worn for running or otherwise, nothing compares to the comfort, breathability, and softness of Cariloha’s bamboo socks – they’ve been on my feet for thousands of miles and never failed me once,” said, Landon Cooper, Miles 2 Give Founder and Runner.

“Ultra-soft, refreshingly cool fabrics like Cariloha’s are typically found in most high-end socks, but these proprietary Cariloha blends are unlike any other in today’s market because they’re made from bamboo,” said Brady. “Unlike exclusively synthetic fabrics, our bamboo-blended fabrics wick 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.”

Cariloha Bamboo socks come with a 90-day quality guarantee. If the socks don’t live up to the customers’ expectations, Cariloha will replace them without reservation. Socks are machine washable and tumble dried low, so maintenance is easy and worry-free.

Cariloha-Bamboo-Scarves

Cariloha this week launched its winter 2015 bamboo scarf line, which is made from eco-friendly bamboo fabric and designed and inspired by Cariloha’s product designers.

Available exclusively at Cariloha stores and online, this year’s bamboo scarf collection features six modern scarf styles, which are all offered on various color, texture and design combinations.
“Our new bamboo scarves boast beautifully bold colors and irresistibly soft fabrics,” said Scott Brady, Cariloha AVP of Communications. They provide textural contrast to any of our Cariloha Bamboo tees or meld seamlessly with a bamboo hoodie or dress.”

Cariloha Bamboo Scarves Features:

“If customers are from a warm, humid climate, the hypoallergenic, moisture-wicking properties of the bamboo keep customers cooler and help prevent skin irritation, unlike non-bamboo fabrics,” said Brady. “Allergies, odors and heat are repelled easier because of the naturally occurring bamboo properties, which make the scarves ideal for a hot or cool day away from home.”

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.
