After more than a decade of struggling to find classic, high quality, and easy-to-care for clothing and accessories, KaLeena Thomas decided to stop shopping and start the solution. In January 2021, she launched a Kickstarter for J. Margaret Weaver, a brand specializing in simple and smart clothing for women. Her vision is to empower and simplify life for women by streamlining the first decision you make every day – what am I going to wear?
The concept for J. Margaret Weaver came to KaLeena after spending years scouring retail stores and websites to try and find simple, high quality, and classic clothing.
After becoming a mom, KaLeena had even less time to spend on shopping, laundry, and getting ready in the morning, and wanted a simple “uniform” to pull out every day.
Customer-Centered. The input of our customers on their needs is central to the design process. From machine-washable fabrics to functional designs, our clothing and accessories are designed and curated with the customer in mind.
Size-Inclusive. Great style should be for everyone. We carry sizes 00 - 22 (XXS - 3XL) and will invest in further expansion in the future.
Ethically-Made. We strive for transparency in our manufacturing processes. Our clothing is sewn in the USA using small-batch production techniques.
Each of our pieces are named through a nomination and selection process whereby someone shares information on a woman who has made a positive contribution in her life. We've recognized mentors, moms, grandmothers, and bosses so far, and look forward to continuing to highlight more incredible women! If your nominee is selected, we will reach out to you for more information on your story. We will also ask for a photo to use. As a thank you, your nominee will also receive her namesake piece in her color and size choice.
