Creating the Jarfette brand and a company has been exciting and unexpected and has led Carol Ann down a path that she could not have imagined when she was teaching Kindergarten. She was 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 she supported her husband and child through life-threatening illnesses, she experienced how small acts of kindness helped all of us hold onto hope. Each day she is thankful that they are well now and leading full lives. She is building Jarfette as a social enterprise brand with compassionate giving at its core. Compassion from others helps us hold onto hope.
Carol Ann learned to sew on a Singer treadle machine when she was 4 and made many of my clothes growing up. Frustrated that she could not find anything to cover her arms that looked good on her body and with a sleeveless dress, she designed a jacket scarf so she would have sleeves. On a whim, she inserted one sleeve into the other, and realized that the jacket scarf could convert into 9 styles. When she 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.
Carol Ann invite you to share compassion and Create your own unique style! with Jarfette.
