Tarma Designs Adds New Sales Reps for its Earth-Friendly Jewelry Line

Tarma Designs has recently appointed sales rep agency KW Sales and sales representative Jodee Manfred to bring its Active and Artisan lines to select regions in the Midwestern and Western U.S.

PETALUMA, CA – Tarma Designs – a conscious company that designs, manufactures and sells distinctive, outdoor- and adventure-inspired recycled and fair trade jewelry – has recently appointed sales rep agency KW Sales and sales representative Jodee Manfred to bring its Active and Artisan lines to select regions in the Midwestern and Western U.S.

“We're growing rapidly and are excited to have a team of great reps on board and expect the Tarma name to spread like wildfire,” said Stephanie George, “Tarma Girl” and co-owner of the company. “We rely on our reps to help us collaborate on future designs, styles and colors, and together, we make up a fun, open and communicative group of people who want to make a difference in the world – even if it's just in a small way. “

Robert Wilkins and Kathleen Koenig make up KW Sales of Redwood City, CA. Started in 1987, the agency boasts established relationships and a large list of clients in the active and outdoor markets. Current lines include CamelBak, Giro snow helmets, GU energy products, Craft/Karhu, Lake cycling footwear, Bula headwear and Crumpler bags. KW Sales will introduce Tarma to specialty retailers in the Northern CA and NV areas.

“Tarma represents not only a great product with a terrific environmental story, but a company that touches our spiritual sides, as well,” said Wilkins. “We have identified Tarma on our ‘what we sell' sheet for dealers as part of the ‘Hors Categorie,' a French term used in the Tour de France that describes a mountain top without category…a climb so high and steep, it escapes regular classification. To us, that is Tarma – a company and a feeling that goes beyond the regular classification of the human experience.”
KW Sales can be reached at (650) 363-2125 or robert@kwsales.net or kathleen@kwsales.net.

Jodee Manfred, a Colorado resident and avid skier, takes on the Tarma line with nearly seven years of experience as a sales rep, adding it to her current roster of outdoor and natural products that includes Kiss My Face, Pistil hats and scarves and Lole active wear. Manfred will bring Tarma to specialty retailers in the CO, UT, WY and TX areas.

“I am interested in Tarma because of its unique designs and like the fact that the Active line is made from recycled stainless steel,” said Manfred. “I am concerned about the environment and like the earth-friendly idea behind Tarma. It also fits my lifestyle of mountain biking, water and snow skiing, inline skating and running. As a matter of fact, I wore the Cairn necklace today on my mountain bike ride! Tarma jewelry can be worn everyday with just about everything.”

Manfred can be reached at (303) 679-9630 or mountainsforme@msn.com.

“Jodee is a terrific, athletic gal that lives the Tarma lifestyle to a tee, and Robert and Kathleen provide a balanced male/ female viewpoint that is integral, since our Active line offers pieces for both men and women,” said George. “We are excited to have them present our earth-friendly accessories to nature lovers and outdoor-spirited individuals in new locations.”

Tarma Designs blends sustainable, high-quality materials, fair trade practices, distinct design elements and the spirit of adventure and exploration to create its two lines of fashionable, socially and environmentally conscious personal art. The Active line brings a love of the outdoors to life for men and women with symbols inspired by active adventures immortalized in recycled stainless steel pendants, earrings, wristbands and bottle openers. The Artisan line offers limited, handmade pieces such as earrings, rings, necklaces, pendants and bracelets representative of the unique cultures of the skilled artisans who craft them.
