ARBOR RELEASES THE 2012 SPRING/SUMMER APPAREL COLLECTION

Venice, CA – March 26, 2012 – The Arbor Collective announces the launch of a NEW apparel website within arborcollective.com in conjunction with the release of the 2012 Spring/Summer apparel line. The new collection is made exclusively of environmentally responsible fabrics, including organic cotton, recycled polyester, lenzing modal, and Arbor’s staple bamboo-based blends. Arbor is proud to announce that 75% of this season’s line was produced in the USA, close to the Venice, California headquarters.

The 2012 Spring/Summer Apparel Collection features a handful of bamboo-based tees showcasing Arbor Collective artists. Bamboo-based wovens and stretch twill pants highlight the new line, in addition to jackets and boardshorts made with nano-bamboo fabrics for fast dry times and natural anti-bacterial properties. New to this year’s Women’s Line are feminine and comfortable modal-based tops and dresses. An all-new line of accessories includes environmentally-responsible hats and belts in a variety of expanded colors and styles.
