Eco-friendly bedding and clothing store takes up residence in Austin
Austin's first luxury, all-bamboo linen and apparel store has joined the swanky Domain Northside corridor. Cariloha brings completely sustainable and eco-friendly products made of renewable resources in the form of mattresses, men’s and women’s apparel, intimates, fitness wear, duvets, and more.
Crafted out of bamboo, Cariloha's products provide an eco-friendly alternative to traditional home linens and clothing lines. Setting up shop in Austin, say the founders, was a natural fit. “Austin is such a green city, and Austinites appreciate environmentally-conscious products,” says Rebecca Burke, co-founder of Cariloha.
Named in honor of the breezy tropical islands of the Caribbean and Hawaii, the Cariloha brand offers a range of products designed to naturally keep you cool — and comfortable. "Our products are naturally hypoallergenic, moisture wicking, repel odors, and are twice as soft as cotton," says Charles Bureker, co-founder. The bamboo fabric also features a thermal regulating property that keeps the wearer up to three degrees cooler than other fibers.
The Cariloha shopping experience is just as luxurious and inviting as the cozy linens and T-shirts. Customers are invited to touch the products before they buy, and can shop items backed by a lifetime guarantee.
Though they can be pricey (mattresses start at $1100 and sheets range from $179-$239), Cariloha says their clean, breathable, and luxurious fabrics come with an environmental payoff that's worth the initial investment. Says Bureker, "Bamboo regenerates naturally and is one of the most eco-friendly resources on the planet."
Cariloha is open seven days a week at 3211 Palm Way in the Domain Northside.
