Just what is Jean’s Closet?

It is the innovative vision of owner and founder Jean Smith who has an extensive background in crafting and crocheting. She designs original handmade gifts for her family and friends. After receiving one of Jean’s creations, a friend suggested that she share her exquisite workmanship with the public at large. That idea was the seed that birthed Jean’s Closet.

Jean’s Closet offers a unique array of crochet and beautifully handmade items for children, adults and the home. Her distinctive fashion and design exhibit a chic style that intersects the classic and the contemporary.

In Jean’s Closet, each piece of stylish apparel, accessories, and home décor are expertly crafted using the finest quality fabric and yarn. The public now has the opportunity to own an item made with love and that personal touch. Shopping in Jean’s Closet is an experience and a lifestyle.

Jean, an educator by profession, enjoys keeping the art of crochet alive by offering classes at her Store in SoNo, at the local library, and local Teens and Community Centers.

Ripa Sandals. Style and Comfort Redefined
Address: 1658 Ponus Ridge New Canaan CT
Business Genre: ,
Short Business Description: Online Footwear company offering comfort and style redefined
Long Business Description:

We're a boutique company, woman owned and founded, with a focus on designing crazy comfortable sandals with great style to be worn anytime and anywhere!

Our patented collections are inspired by our customers. The Himalayan, our first collection, was initially conceived to provide comfort and support to athletes who wanted a comfortable sandal to put on after kicking off their cleats, skates, and running shoes. The all natural shearling footbed gave that much needed soft feel and the rubber sole- the outdoor support needed. Over the years we've discovered that the Himalayan sandals are the go-sandal for not only sports enthusiasts but by everyone! Teens, parents, grandparents all love the luxurious feeling of slipping into the Himalayan which gives them the warmth, comfort and support to wear both at home and about town.

Our customers also asked for a lighter sandal which can be worn to the beach, with casual wear and can be worn inside and outside the home. We created the Sedona, a cork wrapped, triple padded footbed with colorful straps in a sleek profile.

Our Ripa sandal patented designs always combine cushioned foot beds supported by traction, non-marking soles and the color red to support good Karma. An original Ripa Wear sandal is identified by the red incorporated into the sandal's design.

Finally its important to know that we at Ripa Wear believe it's important to contribute every year to organizations that deliver products directly to hose in need. Each year Ripa Wear donates our sandals to global and national non-profit organizations such as AmeriCares, Soles4Souls, CT Quest for Peace and Kids in Distressed Situations (KIDS).
