Sugarfoot Apparel is a family owned and operated small business, started in 2016. Founder and Designer, Chelsea Leveille created and launched the brand between the pregnancies of her two sons. Very clearly a labor of love, the brand has grown since that time and includes screen printed tees, locally inspired designs, embroidery, and cut and sew pieces.
We believe beautiful goes beyond the normal standards of the word. Our beauty is about self expression, and personal style through unique choice. It’s about clothing that helps us feel like ourselves, while standing out.
Mary Keohane, or “Kok’ as those closest referred to her was a first-generation American. Her parents emigrated from County Kerry + County Cork in Ireland. She grew up in Syracuse, NY where she met her future husband one summer while he was home, on furlough from the war. They fell in love through letters during the days he was away. Eventually, they married. She was a mother of ten, then a grandmother of 26. She was so many things but mostly kind, quick witted, and steady. This is for her.
