Fetch & Co. Announces Expansion of the Peace Project T-Shirt Line, February t-shirt sales support Dare2Care program.

Fetch & Co., the Lakewood-based boutique that specializes in body confident clothing, has confirmed that it is expanding the Peace Project, the popular limited-edition line of T-shirts launched last year.

Fetch & Co. owners Julia Gramenz and Abbey Markiewitz will celebrate the full launch of their line, along with the one-year anniversary of the opening of their storefront, with a private party on February 8 followed by an open-house-style celebration on February 9 that includes a free tote give away to the first 20 customers purchasing a Peace Project t-shirt.

The graphic tees, with whimsical puns like “Peace be Kind” and “Peace Pass the Wine” were developed for a serious purpose, to support social impact. The company donates $2 from every purchase to a local nonprofit that changes monthly. The February charity is the Dare2Care program of The Cleveland Leadership Center. Gramenz explains, “Dare2Care is a school-based anti-bullying program whose vision of communities free of harassment, brutality, and indifference we wholeheartedly support. As a company dedicated to helping women feel confident, acceptance and inclusiveness are two of our core values.”

The idea for the line came when Gramenz and Markiewitz were talking about how they could give back to the community. At the same time, they were looking for what Gramenz calls “that perfect graphic tee that would flatter women of all shapes and sizes.” One day the women came up with the peace pun and decided to create the tees themselves.

The initial line focused on holiday options, including “Santa Peace Stop Here” and “Peace Be Merry.” While the new messages are top secret until February 8, the private party will include a mini fashion show broadcast on Facebook Live at 7 p.m. so fans can get a sneak peek.

The styles include short-sleeve and long-sleeve tees and a t-shirt dress. Prices range from $23.50 to $28.99 for the shirts and up to $41.99 for dresses.

“We’re so excited to introduce our new t-shirts. They are premium quality, made in the U.S.A. and printed in Rocky River,” explains Markiewitz. “We want our customers to feel good about their purchases. We’ve created a shirt that women can be comfortable and confident wearing while knowing their purchase is helping to make an impact.”
