Totes Isotoner is celebrating 25 years in West Chester.  In 1997, Totes joined forces with Isotoner to form the Totes Isotoner Corporation, which was based in Loveland until moving to West Chester.  The West Chester location serves as global headquarters for the company which operates in the US, Canada, UK and France.


Remarkably, the company has a portfolio of heritage brands that have collectively been around for more than 300 years.  Isotoner was founded in Paris in 1910; Totes started in 1924, just 20 minutes from West Chester, in Oakley; Acorn was founded in Maine in 1976; Manzella started in 1982.


The company is a global leader across a range of categories – making slippers, gloves, umbrellas, rain wear and cold weather accessories.  To support a business of this scale and variety, the employees who work in West Chester are diverse – including fashion design, finance and accounting, supply chain, marketing, category management, product development and innovation, demand planning, human resources, information technology and distribution/warehousing with the sales team located throughout the country.


Totes Isotoner products are sold in department stores, club and mass retailers, small boutiques and online. “We take great pride in knowing that our brands are household names that families have come to trust for generations – we are excited to continue to innovate for a more comfortable future,” says Dan Rajczak, CEO of the company.


Congratulations to Totes Isotoner company on its 25th anniversary in West Chester!
