About Us

Kristin-Carolyn3Welcome to cameleonjackets.com!

Cameleon is a line of jackets and accessories we design + create in Minnesota. Cameleon began in 1988 when Carolyn, after being laid off from her 20 year career in teaching, created a line of wearable knits and started selling to her friends and neighbors. When I finished college I joined her and together we opened our first retail store in 1992. Since 2005 we have devoted our time exclusively to selling our jackets to boutiques that look to us to provide unique, well-made pieces that inspire themselves and their customers. We create several lines for Spring and Fall.

In the Spring we concentrate on a line of water-repellent coats using a wonderful soft shell fabric which features a DINTEX® water-resistant membrane and a water-repellent surface.We use this same wonderful soft shell fabric with a fleece lining for cooler climates. Both can be ordered year-round!

In the Fall, our wool line combines our love of menswear inspired prints and textures and easy fitting style. We also like to have fun with polar fleece and cotton knits to create casual and fun, yet sophisticated pieces that can be worn year-round depending on where you live.

We welcome the opportunity to show you the line and partner with you in selling Cameleon in your store.
