Cariloha this weekend opened its first store in Huntington Beach’s Pacific City outdoor shopping mall in Orange County, California.
The store’s grand opening celebration will be held this Saturday, June 3 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Grand opening festivities include drawings for Cariloha bamboo bed sheets, live music by local band, Funk Shui Planet, refreshments, and an appearance by Cariloha brand ambassador and world-champion skimboarder and professional wakesurfer, Austin Keen.
Local Cariloha Huntington Beach store owners, Kevin and Lisa Long (pictured below), first experienced the softness of Cariloha bamboo bedding and clothing while visiting the Cariloha store in Las Vegas. They were impressed by the product quality and the corporate values and, after 30 years of corporate jobs, decided they wanted to do something completely different like opening their own store and working together.
“In addition to hiring local people to help run the store, we believe the products are incredibly soft and comfortable and environmentally friendly,” said Lisa Long. “We hope the local clientele will embrace our soft, cool, clean and green bamboo products as much as we have.”
Cariloha bamboo fabrics offer unique benefits. They’re 3 degrees cooler than cotton and wick moisture away from the skin. They also repel odors and allergens naturally without any harmful chemicals. Above all, bamboo fabrics are unbelievably soft compared to luxury fabrics like cashmere and silk but at a fraction of the price.
“Customers in this area are looking for natural, eco-friendly products that will meet their demands for luxury, style and performance,” Long said. “Cariloha is dedicated to providing a unique, educational shopping experience by using display panels that help to inform customers of the bamboo features and benefits of the comfortable, green fabric.”
A warm Cariloha welcome to the Longs and to the newest Cariloha store in Huntington Beach!
