Our Story


Hello!  And welcome to Cardigan.

My name  is Tiffany Rottinghaus, I am the Owner and President of Mara, Inc.  Mara, Inc. currently operates two brick and mortar stores in Charles City, Iowa:

Cardigan, 101 N. Main Street

Women's Casual Clothing Boutique

Mara, 500 Kelly Street

Bridal, Prom & Tuxedo Boutique

It brings me so much joy to share my passion with you.  Breathing life into brick and mortar businesses to bring communities and their main streets more vibrancy.

Cardigan carries adorable, and quality women's clothing, accessories and gifts - designed to bring our customers confidence.  The products we carry are meticulously chosen, thoughtfully curated, and derived from many local artisans, and high quality clothing vendors, many made in the US. 


We love being the go-to girlfriend's day-out boutique.  So grab a coffee, venture down to Main Street, shop with us on the back-side of 101 N. Main, and then take a stroll on the river's bank.. right across the street.  Can't wait to meet you!

Tiffany Rottinghaus, Owner of Cardigan, Charles City Iowa
