Made with love
Clô Dancewear started as an idea in March of 2020 by then high school sophomore, Chloe. At the time, Chloe was in her third year volunteering for a local shelter for women and children. After spending much time with the children residents, she wanted a way to offer the children a space where they could move freely and boundlessly. Being a lifelong dancer, Chloe wanted to provide the children at the shelter and other children with the opportunity to dance. Combining her passion for dance and studio art, Chloe wanted to design, create and sell dancewear and direct the income toward funding dance scholarships for children in the greater Boston area.
Motivated by her desire and determination, over quarantine, Chloe sketched out countless leotards and taught herself how to sew using her parent's old sewing machine. She put herself to work experimenting with different styles and stitching of leotards. Having danced her whole life, Chloe prioritized designing leotards that were both elegant and flattering and provided ease of movement.
Also important to Chloe was creating sustainable products. Chloe wanted to find a way to mitigate the environmental impact by working with cleaner materials. In partnership with ECONYL®, Chloe hand makes each leotard with love and care using ECONYL® regenerated nylon from nylon waste otherwise polluting the Earth, such as fishing nets, fabric scraps, carpet flooring, and industrial plastic.
Chloe was able to develop a process that results in Clô leotards that are both flattering and sustainable. Clô Dancewear also uses recycled and recyclable packaging.
Our goal is to create sustainable dancewear while striving to make the world a better place through each leotard.
Thank you so much for supporting this cause! Your purchase will help fund a dance scholarship. We also hope you love the Clô leotard as much as Chloe loves making them. We hope you stay along for the ride!
