Backcountry.com launched its new online specialty showcase: Treeline. Treeline is an online retail showcase for artists, craftsmen, and up-and-coming brands whose products evolve the outdoor lifestyle.
Backcountry.com curates a new, fresh, and focused shopping experience each week, featuring the work or wares of one brand or artist at a time. Each experience tells a compelling behind-the-scenes story through words, interviews, and photography.
“Treeline is an experiment for us, one that comes straight from the heart of Backcountry.com, from our roots,” said Jill Layfield, CEO of Backcoutry.com. “We are a specialty retailer deeply invested in the future of specialty retail. New brands and product innovation are fundamental to the specialty retail experience. With Treeline, we honor outdoor-focused entrepreneurs and provide a showcase for innovation and creativity.”
Backcountry.com Treeline is essentially a content-rich marketplace for the brands it features. It currently has a separate shopping cart from Backcountry.com. When people purchase through Treeline, they are connected to the featured company for all processing and fulfillment.
Treeline launches with the spotlight on Pladra — a San Francisco-based company that makes premium flannel shirts that are both field- and town-ready. “Through Treeline, Backcountry.com gives us unbelievable exposure,” said Jeff Ladra, co-founder and designer at Pladra, “And they do it in a way that allows us to share our story. We’re a new brand, and for us, telling that story is important. ”
Treeline is live now at www.backcountrytreeline.com.
