The idea for GRACEDBYGRIT was conceived during a run between two entrepreneurs: Kimberly Caccavo and her run and swim coach, Kate Nowlan. We wanted clothes that make women feel safe and powerful and allow them to carry a phone on them at all times. We wanted clothes that work for land and sea and protect women from the sun. Most importantly, we wanted to look our best, and we wanted our friends to look their best. We knew looking our best meant we would perform at our best. We wanted elegant styles and high performance fabrics. And, we wanted to look good from behind.
We are two active entrepreneurs. We discovered that we have a lot in common: we're both moms; we love fashion; we love to laugh; we love to find the beauty in every woman we meet; we love to run, hike, bike and ski and we have incredible energy. Kate is a single mom and Kimberly decided to start something new in her 50’s. We had each experienced a major life event that forced us to learn what we were truly made of.
Every woman has experienced that difficult moment that she thinks might just break her. How we make it through those moments defines us. We have realized that our grittiest moments give us our grace. Every woman has been GRACEDBYGRIT.
We proudly design and manufacture our product in the USA minutes from our offices in Solana Beach, California.
When you wear GRACEDBYGRIT, we hope you feel powerful, confident, safe and motivated to be active. We understand what it takes to be a woman. We celebrate the strength and power behind every woman’s gritty moment.
