For the girls who go against the grain

The idea for Tom-Boi was born in 2013 when founder, Clarita Farrugia, decided to start a brand that represented what a tomboy meant to her, which is simply, a girl who goes against the grain.

When you’re a kid, you just – BE. You don’t worry about what anyone thinks of you, or what you wear, or who you hang out with or have a crush on, or what books you like to read; you don’t care who you offend with your music tastes and dancing skills; you just BE. We can’t really think of a good reason why that as grown ups, we should care about any of that stuff either. So we don’t.

We are true to our true selves, through and through: we act how we want, we play how (and what) we want (though we always play nice); we hang with whoever we want, we crush on whoever we want and best of all, we wear whatever we damn well want!

We make super comfortable, super practical and dare we say, super cute threads for active chicks. So that you can (you guessed it)… just BE.
