Jarfette® Adaptive Clothing
Jarfette® is a social enterprise brand dedicated to providing innovative fashion solutions for all women while giving back to those experiencing illness. We produce adaptive and convertible designs that wrap women in comfort and confidence.
We designed our adaptive line with style, convertibility, and functionality in mind.
Our plush, warm adaptive Cozy has snaps on both sleeves and converts from a jacket to a shawl when snapped differently. This is a great choice for women with limited mobility who are cold and/or may struggle with dressing. The snap system gives easy access for IVs/tubes during hospital stays or treatments.
Our signature 9 style convertible Jarfette® jacket scarf, can be adapted with snaps, in many fabrics. While solving the problem of what to wear with a sleeveless dress, the designs in this line simplify dressing and enhance the look of your outfit whether you are dressing for work, for travel, or for a special occasion. Watch our tutorial on the home page to learn how the jacket scarf converts. At this time, most of the adaptive jacket scarves are custom made. Please send us a message on the contact page and we will work with you to choose a fabric and will design an adaptive jacket scarf.
Our adaptive clothing line comes in 2 sizes, XS-M and M-XL. By unsnapping the snap closest to the upper arm, the adaptive Cozy and adaptive jacket scarf become a size larger when worn in the jacket position.
Note from Carol Ann, the designer.
Touch and comfort are very important when someone is ill. I would have given anything to wrap my daughter in something soft and comfortable that could fit around her IVs when she was ill, but a product didn’t exist. I was inspired by this experience to design the adaptive Cozy to solve this issue for women. I am currently working to add more fashionable and functional clothing to this line.
