Founded by three-time Olympic medalist and four-time World Champion freestyle skier Kari Traa, the Norwegian brand is quickly becoming the standard for active women seeking stylish, bold, high performance base layers and training apparel made just for them.

“Kari Traa, the brand and person, actively inspire women to live happier, healthier and more empowered lives,” says Sissel Himle, Global Marketing Manager of Active Brands. “Through their vast experience in the outdoor, fitness and active lifestyle industries, Verde is the ideal partner to carry that message to a broad North American market.”

Kari Traa brings its success to North America with unique, easily recognizable women’s-specific base layers and training apparel, including a wide collection of styles and designs that blend merino wool with innovative technical fabrics. A commitment to women’s-specific design coupled with Scandinavian style and tradition are the source of inspiration for Kari Traa’s esteemed apparel collections.

“Kari Traa is a vivid and empowering brand for active women who won’t compromise style for performance. The Kari Traa brand continues to shake up women’s-specific apparel and design for female outdoor athletes,” said Kristin Carpenter-Ogden, founder and CEO of Verde Brand Communications. “We look forward to helping Kari Traa build on their highly engaged and loyal fan base – this brand’s time is now.”

Through an integrated approach, Verde will help the Scandinavian brand tell their unique story in North America with media relations, brand storytelling and creative communication strategies. Kari Traa will work with Verde as they prepare to unveil new designs at SnowSports Industries America Snow Show in Denver, Colo. January 26 through January 29.
