The Story Of Tilden Co. 

At the beginning of 2018, Kaden and Julie Bench created an online boutique they named KJ's Dresses and Ties to compete in Utah State University's $100 start-up competition. With an idea, $100, and a lot of faith, KJ's Dresses and Ties was born. After finishing in the Top 10 of the competition, they decided that they should keep going with their dream business.

In 2021, KJ's was rebranded to Tilden Co. to allow for expansion and to better meet the needs of the local community. Tilden Co. also opened their first brick and mortar location in Blackfoot, Idaho in October of 2021!

From dresses to swimwear to jeans to accessories, Tilden's goal is to help women of all ages and sizes feel empowered and confident.

Our Mission

Our mission at Tilden Co. is to help all women feel empowered and confident. We know that clothing isn't the most important piece to that puzzle, but it is a piece. We want you to be able to walk into our store or shop our website and find clothing that will help you have the confidence you need to let your inner self shine. We want to be with you as you make life memories, as you stand up for yourself and others, and as you change the world. 

We also want to give back to our community. Our brick and mortar location is located in Blackfoot, Idaho. This little town was the town we grew up in. It's where we started our own journeys to becoming our best selves. We grew up here playing sports, participating in local activities, and being lifted up by local members who believed in us. This little town helped shape us, and we want to help it continue to bless the lives of those who live here. 

If you have any questions about our women's clothing boutique, (physical or online store), or our story, feel free to reach out! Email us at for any questions or comments!
