RISE open house and product launch!

With the summer solstice approaching it’s about time to celebrate the changing of seasons. Coincidently, it’s also time for RISE Designs, second annual open house and product release party. You won’t want to miss this!

RISE Designs says thanks!

Rise Designs - Housewarming

In case you’re not local or just haven’t heard of them, RISE Designs is a clothing and graphic design company out of Meyers, CA. It all began for them in 2006 when two self-proclaimed ski bums named Mike and Marley, came together with a common goal. The goal was simple. Make a couple shirts and hoodies for themselves and friends. Soon, this hobby sparked a passion and the rest is history. After purchasing their first screen press in 2007 this collaboration has gone on to design some of the freshest rags in the industry. Inspiration is drawn from the love of nature, music and design. You can see much of the surrounding environment in each of their creations. Another major focus is to ensure their products are handmade with a low environmental impact. This is one of the few places still doing it right. From start to finish RISE products are totally hands on. Pride of craftsmanship is evident. Want to see for yourself? Check out their promo video.

Whether you’ve purchased from them or not head over to their product release party this weekend. With tunes blasting, the BBQ roaring, ice cold drinks and fresh gear, you won’t find a better way to spend the evening. RISE Designs wants to show their community what they’ve been up to as well as express their gratitude to the region they love.

Like two rivers winding through the landscape that eventually merge into one, Mike and Marley from Rise Designs are constantly evolving their craft. This season’s apparel is “next-level!” It still focuses on being inspired from nature with an extra added dose of Tahoe.

If you are in the market for a new snowboard then make sure to check out Tahoe Labs. Not only do they handcraft each board in the U.S., but these boards are made IN Tahoe. Just like Rise Designs, they focus on making the highest quality product out there.  Using bamboo as their core and carbon fiber in their top sheets they are definitely some of the lightest quality boards you can find!
