Every Garment Tells a Story

green 3 garments are more than just cloth that is cut and sewn. Each garment represents a vision, a mission, a change, a skill applied, or an opportunity for independence. Truly, if you could look inside and listen … every garment tells a story.

green 3 wants to show, and help you tell the stories behind the items. Throughout our Fall/Holiday 2014 line and on the hang tags applied to the garments, you will find QR codes. When these codes are scanned by a smart phone, the user will be taken via a link to a short video that provides information that relates to the item.

At green 3, we are proud of what we do, and who we do it with. We want to share it with you, and have you share it as well. Thank you and we hope you enjoy our new Fall/Holiday 2014 line.

Remember … every garment tells a story!

green 3 – Company Store move

Green 3 is excited to announce that our retail store is moving!  After 3 years at our Oshkosh location, we will be moving our store to 523 W. Water Street in Princeton WI.  A logical question is “Why”?  Well there are several reasons why this made sense for us.

First and foremost, we are a wholesale company, whose focus is on designing, sourcing, manufacturing and distributing environmentally friendly, USA made products to great retailers nationwide.  What we learned over the last few years is that running a retail store takes a tremendous amount of time and energy to do it well.  While we were proud of our store in Oshkosh, and felt like we were doing a pretty nice job with it, we could never allocate the time, money, or energy to make it everything it could possibly be.  Once we came to that realization, we began to have dialog with retail professionals in the area who were successfully running their own stores, to see if there was an interest to collaborate with us on opening the first free standing Green 3 store.

We feel very fortunate to have found what we think is the perfect set of partners in Matt and Jess Greget, who for 11 years have successfully run Daiseye in the charming retail district in Princeton, WI.  Matt and Jess, will be opening the Green 3 store directly adjacent to their Daiseye location in a beautiful,  historic building with original wood floors, tin ceilings, huge windows and a view of the river out back.  The new Green 3 store will be open 7 days a week ( yeah!! ).  The soft opening for the store will be this Saturday, June 7th, with a grand opening to follow.

Thank you to everyone who has patronized our store in Oshkosh, and please visit the new location in Princeton.  It will be everything you have come to love about the original store, plus so much more!

Bella’s Debut!

Who remembers this cute little face from November?

Bella as a puppy

Bella is ready to make her debut here at green 3!

Bella (or LL Belladonna) is a Lagotto Romagnolo (Italian Water Dog). Written evidence places this breed in Romagna as early as the 1600 and throughout the 19th century. Aside from being a water dog the Lagotto was the breed of choice to hunt truffles between the two World Wars. Today the Lagotto Romagnolo is the only purebred dog in the world recognized as a specialized truffle hunter (AKC.org).

Bella participated in her 2nd photo shoot on Friday, May 9th where she modeled a couple dog sweaters for the 2014 Fall/Holiday line. A matching owner scarf will also be available so you can be as stylish as possible during your morning walks!

She spends most of her work days here at the office in the morning where she can watch over everyone and get her work done. Right away in the morning she must make the rounds and say good morning to each and every team member. She also alerts everyone when our UPS driver, Eric, is here with a delivery. Then in the afternoon she heads home for an afternoon nap and some R & R. Some work days she needs time away and visits her friends at Doggie Daycare for a day of fun and playtime (or the occasional grooming session).

Because Bella is a fashionable Italian, and now has experience as a model, she is looking to expand her role at Green 3.  We are excited to announce her new position as Fashion Consultant.  Bella will be tweeting her thoughts on upcoming Green 3 styles, colors, and trends.  She also will weigh in on trends in the marketplace and in popular culture in general. Beginning Monday, June 9, 2014 you can follow her tweets on all these topics and more!

You can follow her on Twitter @Bella_green3

Photo Shoot & Development

Here at green 3 we are wrapping up our development phase and just waiting on a couple last minute samples – then the fun begins!

This week we started our photo shoot (see preview photos below) for Fall/Holiday! This is an exciting time for us as our artist, Alex, begins to design our new catalog filled with new products! We still have some holiday shots to take in a couple weeks and we’ll be all set to begin proofing followed by printing. Did you know our catalog is printed using soy-based inks on recycled paper?

Once that is done we start getting ready for our trade shows – this year we will take part in Wild Birds Unlimited, Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishing Market, NY NOW & Wisconsin Holiday Market in Kohler Wisconsin (list subject to change).

In between all these trade shows we will move on to spring development and the cycle begins again!

Here are some fun fall accessory images from our photo shoot – which is your favorite?
