Where We Started
Two of Dovetail Workwear's founders (Kate and Kyle Marie) followed their gardening passion and launched Moxie and Moss Landscape Design. Digging in the wet, Pacific NW soil was uncomfortable, their everyday jeans weren't up to the task, and workwear marketed to women was either ill-fitting and tailored for men's bodies or offered stereotypical colors and patterns. Enter their client (Sara) who happened to be an apparel industry expert. The three decided to take things into their own hands, designing and producing Dovetail's Maven Slim to fill the fit, function and durability gap in women's workwear.
The Maven Slim was extensively field tested on real women from bike mechanics and construction workers to artists and firefighters. Their input helped hone Dovetail Workwear's products and inspired our commitment to launch a complete apparel line. We are so proud to partner with the women and organizations in trades, physical, and outdoor occupations leading the women's workwear movement.
Through the creation of high quality apparel, Dovetail Workwear is providing tools that support women's jobs and lives. We can't wait for you to join us and get dirty!
