Our Design Philosophy

When you pick up a Toad&Co garment, we want you to get that tingly sensation that lets you know it’s more than just a piece of clothing: It’s a socially and environmentally committed garment, equally suited for the rigors of the trail or the tavern, your all-access pass to living life to the fullest. Sure, we want you to feel how insanely soft and perfectly stretchy it is too, but we mostly want you to feel awesome knowing that good decisions went into the production of your beloved Toad.

Everything we make should be worthy of the resources we use and worthy of your everyday adventures. We achieve this with a perfect balance a Trail to Tavern® style, eco materials, and just enough technology (or JET, as it’s known around TOAD HQ). We start with using the best materials possible and add technical features to make it more than just a pretty face. Take a hike in our moisture-wicking little black dress. Bike to work in our organic cotton chinos that have just enough stretch. Our signature Trail to Tavern® style lets you go from morning hike to brunch with the in-laws without breaking a (visual) sweat. All this while lightening our collective environmental footprint. Now that feels good.

Trail to Tavern

Trail to Tavern® Style

We refuse to accept that outdoorsy folks be forced to look like they’re wearing ranger uniforms. No matter the season or style, our clothes are equally suited for the rigors of the trail or tavern, your all-access pass to living life to the fullest.

Eco Materials

eCo Materials

Choosing sustainability isn’t always the easy route, but for us it’s the only route. Our products are long lasting in both materials and style, and 90% of styles made using sustainable materials like plant-based fibers, recycled fibers, organic cotton, and certified earth-friendly fabrics.

Just Enough Technology

Just Enough Technology

Stealthy technical features make trail to tavern excursions possible. Polygiene® odor control, DWR finish, 4-way stretch, Insect Shield® and stash pockets (even in dresses!) can make all the difference. Spontaneity is just preparation in disguise.
