Wendy and sister Sondra have always been crafty, so when they noticed chalkboard surfaces trending in interior design they thought 'imagine if we could put a chalkboard on a shirt to create a new shirt everyday!'.
The sisters were determined to create a chalkboard-like surface that could accept chalk markers, not only smudgy traditional limestone chalk. As mothers themselves, they knew their chalkboard t-shirts would have to be durable, re-usable, and machine-washable. After much research, and with a little product testing help from their own kids, Chalk of the Town was born.
Since then, our shirts have been featured on the Today Show and ABC News, recommended by Good Housekeeping and People Magazine, and sold in over 150 stores across the country.
At Chalk of the Town, we believe customizing your own unique creation can inspire self-confidence, spark creativity, and foster togetherness. Our user-friendly products empower any level of artist to design their own fabulous items, again and again, and explore what makes you YOU!
We also believe in giving back to our local community: we partnered with City Harvest during the first months of the COVID-19 pandemic to fight food insecurity here in New York; we donated to the Ali Forney Center in honor of Pride Month to support homeless LGBT youth; and we collaborated with The Art Therapy Project on their mission to help trauma survivors heal through art.
