Kaden Apparel was founded in Burlington, Vermont, in 2013 by Chelsea Camarata. The idea for Kaden was born out of her frustration with the selection, or lack thereof, of women’s mountain bike clothing. The necessity for high-quality, ladies specific bike clothing, that is both functional and fashionable, was apparent. Chelsea began prototyping and creating her hand-made garments with some old sewing machines, in her dining room. Eventually getting her designs to the level of quality she was looking for, she began working with an American manufacturing facility to produce the line. Kaden’s moisture wicking fabrics are specially designed to keep women riders dry for even the longest rides. Designed by riders, Kaden Apparel is dedicated to making the best clothing for women cyclists.
As you likely know, producing and selling apparel requires quite a bit of capital up front. While we've just launched our brand thanks to a recent Kickstarter success, a Fuel for Thought project grant would enable us to buy the supplies needed in order to keep up with inventory demands.
Women shouldn’t have to settle for the same ill-fitting clothing, in fabrics that don’t perform, adorned with the same ugly flower prints. Kaden Apparel is designed with you in mind, in styles and fits made specifically for you. Fabrics and fits have been vigorously tested in all conditions, near our Vermont headquarters and elsewhere. Your clothing needs to perform as hard as you do, and Kaden Apparel is designed, built and tested to do just that.
