Garden Girl’s Practical, Pretty Work Clothes Have Room for Everything, Including the Gardener
Garden Girl is a new line of outdoor speialty clothing and accessories designed specifically for women who garden. The line features feminine designs in natural fabrics that wear well and wear-in to perfection, getting softer and softer over time like great jeans. The creation of Swedish designer Petra Maison, the line is now brought to the U.S. by Garden Girl USA.
The fabric patterns are decidedly feminine, reminiscent of Victorian country florals and toiles in muted colors suited to colorful or earthy garden settings.
Women gardeners will especially appreciate Garden Girl’s smart functional pockets. There are reinforced leg pockets to hold sharp pruning tools and weeders, shin pockets for removable knee pads, and abundant multi-sized, velcroed or expandable pockets designed to hold the assorted stuff gardeners typically lug around: cell phone, hat, gloves, bandana, sunscreen, sunglasses, scissors, pen, paper, chapstick, twine, tissues, bug spray, and more!
Designs by Women for Women
The Swedish gardening garb, introduced in 2009, was an instant hit in Scandinavia. Soon requests poured in for retail access in Europe, the UK, Australia and New Zealand. Now, Denver-based Garden Girl USA is offering the stylish line of functional work garb to American gardeners via gardengirlusa.com plus select retailers across the country.
“Garden Girl is designed by women for women. And gardeners here are definitely responding to the benefits of fit, functionality and comfort,” says Linnea Geiger of Garden Girl USA.
Garden Girl clothing and accessories include: Wellie boots in floral patterns with gusseted tops for easy movement and bending; a clever line of multi-pocketed, side-stretch gardening pants, shorts, skorts, capris and bib overalls; fine-fitting gardening gloves with lace trim or embroidery; plus stretch tops, tool-carrying aprons, jackets and rain sets and related accessories including scarves, umbrellas, kneepads, socks, tools and hats. Retail prices range from $5.99 for floral-patterned nitrile weeding gloves; to $69.99 for a practical split-skirted garden skort with reinforced pockets and side-stretch at the waist and hips; to $139.99 for a fitted softshell cool weather jacket with gardening features and floral lining.
