Bo Sheperd

Bo moved to Detroit to design cars, but as it turned out the Motor City would reveal to her a higher calling: working with wood and reclaiming materials. Now Bo and her partner Kyle run a 24,000-sq-ft shop and design studio, Woodward Throwbacks, who's goal is to not only create stunning furniture, but to build a model for modern and sustainable manufacturing.

Grant Program

WORKWEAR TO SHARE

The workwear grant was created to make our garments more accessible to all.

Our hope is that through this program, we can help a few women in need of the right stuff to do the tough stuff. Beginning in 2021, we will award a Handyma’am garment to one ma’am twice a year (a Fall/Winter cycle, and a Spring/Summer cycle). We look for two main factors in applicants:

1. The applicant is doing work that centers their communities and/or uplifting other women.

2. The applicant and/or organization aligns with our values:

We believe women are powerful, and their workwear should reflect that. For us, this means everything — quality, design, fit and production — is centered around the confidence and capability of the wearer.

Handyma’am is here because women need to be seen, heard, represented and have our needs met — whatever they are.
