we wanted to bring a fun side to okanagan life
We created 351 Apparel in February 2018, after feeling that the Okanagan could use a bit of creativity and humour. So we’ve combined Andy’s skills of punny-phrases & adventure survivalist skills, and Amber’s creative designs and love for adventure into one apparel & gear company.
bam! meet the 351 family
Andy is a self taught adventure survivalist with a growing passion for creating important but stylish and effective survival pieces like our paracord bracelets, hiking sticks and even a line of paracord dog collars & leashes, properly named, Trail Buddies. He’s the type of guy, that if you found yourself lost in the middle of the woods, you’d say to yourself “We’re lost, but at least Andy’s here!”. Andy was born in Cochrane Albert but moved to Summerland in ’95 and has since grown up among the Okanagan mountains, his growing love for the outdoors has inspired him to challenge himself to create hiking gear you didn’t know you needed. His creativity and determination inspire others to fulfill their creative ideas.
Amber Andreucci, half Yukon girl & half Okanaganite, born in Penticton she’s been working miracles since day one. With the spirit of adventure guiding her she’s always looking for some new place to explore. Entrepreneurship runs in her blood, soon after receiving her diploma for Graphic & Digital Media Design in Kelowna she launched her own business which has run successfully for the last 10 years. When she wants to unwind you can’t keep her inside, Amber has a drive to be in nature; hiking, kayaking, camping, white water rafting & zip lining, you name she has done it! Taking her love for outdoor life and her entrepreneurial spirit was the spark that helped 351 become a reality.
Kristina is a caffeine loving, camera slinging, adventure seeking bad ass boss lady who surrounds herself with other influential like minded people. Kristina wholeheartedly believe every moment in our lives is worth capturing, that why she has joined up with the 351 team to help brand our small business and take it to the next level. When forced out from behind the camera (it happens sometimes!), you can find Kristina checking out new Okanagan digs, exploring the trails or even modelling! We are lucky to have this amazing lady on the 351 team whether it be the social media posts, scheduled text message reminders to post (haha) or hooking us up with other great businesses to collaborate with.
we love the okanagan
What better way to explore the Okanagan than grabbing your favourite pal and hitting the trails. We have some amazing waterfalls here!
