About Us

Hand Jive started in the mid 90's out of a love of fashion and art.

The vision for the company originated from frustration during monthly shopping trips, unable to find interesting, (and flattering) clothing for the "post junior" masses. That's when I started doing monthly "studio nights", spending the evening in my printmaking studio, hand stamping clothes. I got so many compliments on my creations, that I entered a local school craft fair to see what would happen... and the rest, as they say, is history!

Hand Jive is now in its 23rd year of producing original design, limited-run women's clothing and traveling the country, (in the infamous Freightliner Sprinter) offering, "groovy clothes for cool chicks" to thousands of you, my faithful patrons.

I'm really excited to bring my passion and inspiring designs to the web for your "anytime shopping" pleasure. Let Hand Jive encourage you to embrace the changes life brings... in style! 

Peace, Dawn
