Creating the Jarfette brand and a company has been exciting and unexpected and has led me down a path that I could not have imagined when I was teaching Kindergarten. I am inspired and humbled by the many personal stories shared on this journey as well as support for the Jarfette vision of spreading compassion in a world that is not always easy.
As I supported my husband and my child through life-threatening illnesses, I experienced how small acts of kindness helped all of us hold onto hope. Each day I am thankful that they are well now and leading full lives. I am building Jarfette as a social enterprise brand with compassionate giving at its core. Compassion from others helps us hold onto hope.
I learned to sew on a Singer treadle machine when I was 4 and made many of my clothes growing up. Frustrated that I could not find anything to cover my arms that looked good on my body and with a sleeveless dress, I designed a jacket scarf so I would have sleeves. On a whim, I inserted one sleeve into the other, and realized that the jacket scarf could convert into 9 styles. When I added magnetic buttons to keep it in place, the 9 style, patent pending, Jarfette jacket scarf was born.
When you buy from the Jarfette collections you will have a direct impact on the life of a woman in need, as a portion of the revenue will be used to fund distribution of Jarfette products to women struggling with major illnesses.
I invite you share compassion and Create your own unique style! with Jarfette.
