Approaching their one-year anniversary, Will & Ivey was started by Sandra Ney, originally from the northern California hills. “The mission of Will & Ivey is very simply to weave peace and purpose through fashion,” says Sandra. The mission is translated into baby and children’s apparel, quilts and keepsake bowls. The company takes advantage of local talent and is helping keep the manufacturing industry in Tennessee alive. Will & Ivey began a partnership with ToolLife to establish a sewing microbusiness in Honduras. Below are a few Will & Ivey products you can find at Arcade.
