TORONTO, Nov. 13, 2023 /CNW/ - Global lifestyle brand Roots Corporation ("Roots," or the "Company") (TSX: ROOT) continues to commemorate its 50th anniversary with a limited-edition collection that celebrates Heather Cooper, the nature-inspired artist behind its original iconic Beaver logo. Honouring the brand's beginnings and consistent connection to nature, the collection features a style-forward all-over print of Cooper's original artwork in new fabrications and styles.

"Heather Cooper's iconic painting has been a source of inspiration to the creative team here at Roots for decades. Our 50th Anniversary Holiday season felt like the perfect time to bring it to life in everything from family puzzles and gifts to gorgeous luxury down puffers and leather bags and accessories. These limited edition pieces will be collector's items for generations to come," says Karuna Scheinfeld, Roots Chief Product Officer.

The gender free, men's, women's and kids, toddler, and baby collection includes a made in Canada Studio crewneck, five variations of puffer coats fabricated with 100% recycled materials, and three leather bags handcrafted in the Roots Toronto factory. With a heavy emphasis on functional outerwear that has a fashion-first perspective, the print-dominant collection offers a style-conscious, but functionally-minded consumer the best of both worlds.

The Roots Beaver logo is an emblematic part of Roots brand history; since its first use Beaver is synonymous with Roots to all Canadian consumers. The new artwork takes inspiration from Heather Cooper's commissioned 1976 oil painting for Roots, transforming it into a captivating print, a representation of Roots core values, reimagined for the future. "Nature has greatly influenced my work over the years. I'm drawn to growth and abundance. I'm not an abstract painter, and I never will be. What I create isn't realistic — it's a graphic reinterpretation of reality," shares artist Heather Cooper.

Prices for the Roots x Heather Cooper Collection range between $16 and $598 CAD with a full breadth of fleece, all-over print, pajama, leather, and outerwear styles for the entire family. Available in 2023, the collection can be purchased in all Roots stores in Canada and the US and at roots.com as of October.
