Alaska Roots’ promotes appreciation for the outdoors, heritage and sustainability.
We show respect to the land we live on and seek to work toward communities growing their own food base and encourage sustainable living design.
To work toward these goals, we offer merchandise featuring Alaska Roots designs. Check out our Store to see what we are currently offering. We are always looking to expand our product base. Please contact us if you create an Alaska-made product and would like to collaborate.
