 Welcome to Clothware

A lively shopping destination since the Seventies, Clothware began as a "womens design collective", producing an original line of fashion alternatives. Clothware remains loyal to the same criteria that accounted for it's initial success as a Harvard Square specialty shop. The winning combination of upbeat colors, resilient fabrics, and uncluttered design continues to appeal to a self-styled customer who is aware of fashion direction, but not defined by it.

Clothware’s well-edited mix is item-driven, with the emphasis on career, weekend, occasion and travel wear. A fine lingerie and sleepwear section focuses on the customer’s at-home wardrobe, where pure cottons and silks, as well as innovative synthetics, offer a taste of European style. Frequently updated accessories round out the package, featuring contemporary jewelry, handwoven scarves, bags, totes, and hats.

A fast-changing inventory showcases favorite labels, artful finds, and local design talent. We carry a predominately S-M-L size range, with some petites and larger sizes. Visit us soon to experience Clothware’s unique fashion slant, in a congenial shopping atmosphere, with a creative sales staff.
