About Us

Today, we continue designing and producing unique, high-quality and fashionable products and make them available to individuals, groups, corporations, distributors and retailers. Our Mission is: To provide distinctive products with purpose by connecting to a need, story or cause.

The Kootenay Knit & Apparel story began in 1994 in the East Kootenays, a location in beautiful British Columbia, Canada with breathtaking views, magnificent mountain ranges, lush green valleys, endless rushing rivers and crystal clear lakes. The area hosts an abundance of outdoor activities for every season including skiing, snowboarding, biking, golfing, fishing and hiking. Owner, Cathy Rella began with her flair for design and creativity to start a uniquely Canadian headwear and knitwear business.
