Toggery by Kate DArcy is a contemporary collection of knits that, in
addition to offering every woman's essential shapes and styles, is
comprised of all 100% organic and sustainable fabrics. The cotton and
bamboo fibers used are certified organic using no synthetic
fertilizers or pesticides. Each piece is colored with low impact
reactive dyes that use less energy, less chemicals and produce less
waste than natural or vegetable dyes.
Designer Kate DArcy's mission is to offer a collection of knits using
eco-friendly practices that is still at the forefront of contemporary
trends so that the everyday consumer can become socially responsible.
The debut collection features staple layering tanks, throw-on dresses, a
convertible pashmina, a structured bolero and other fall trend pieces. I've created a lifestyle brand that enables women to make socially and
environmentally conscious decisions about clothing, while still being
fashion forward and trend oriented. Everyone needs to do their part but
it doesn't need to be a sacrifice.
Everything from the yarn to the finished garment of the Toggery by Kate
D'Arcy collection is produced in a socially compliant and quality
certified production facility in Pennsylvania that practices vertical
manufacturing. The result is reliable production, consistent quality and
a reduced environmental footprint.
Kate D'Arcy has a background in communications which led her to various
professional endeavors in personal shopping, styling and special events.
As a personal shopper and a devotee to basic fits that you can mix and
match and accessorize, she found herself looking at various women's
closets and seeing that they were always lacking just a couple basic
pieces that would help everything else make sense. Growing up in a local
family-run business, Kate firmly believes in doing business in your
backyard to help the community thrive and grow. Toggery by Kate DArcy
is her fashionable and functional answer.
Toggery by Kate D'Arcy is sustainable clothing for a lux life, retailing
from $29 - $115 (wholesaling from $12.50-$45).
