Susan Mocarski, artist and fashion designer, put Cleverhood on the map with their distinctive American made outerwear capes.
She and Lani from Tandem NY met at the National Bike Summit’s “Forum on Women & Bicycling” and with their shared interest in fashion and biking, worked together to launch Tandem and Cleverhood’s Sweatshirt Cape.
This is no ordinary “hoodie”…
The Cleverhood Sweatshirt Cape for Tandem is designed in NYC and carefully crafted in nearby Fall River, MA. This fleece cape offers a freedom of movement plus an expression of style with plenty of room for layering underneath to adjust to the weather. There’s a handy inside kangaroo pocket with a second smaller pocket for your mobile device. The hood sports the signature Tandem coral-colored drawstring. The fabric is thick and soft and it’s machine washable.
Fall River, MA was the textile centre of the US and an industrial leader. Since 1990, Fall River has lost nearly 70% of its manufacturing jobs. The Cleverhood Sweatshirt Cape for Tandem is crafted by skilled USA garment workers.
