Description of Business or Organization

We design and make wonderful, practical & functional headwear.

Our hats can be found all over the world from Japanese trend boutiques to Orvis fly fishing shops and through mail order firms such as TravelSmith.com. As well as our own brands we do a lot of private label - We've worked with Issey Miyake, Barneys, DKNY, Smith & Hawken, Martha Stewart, Mountain Hardwear among others. We are a small group of craftspeople who embrace traditional as well as modern tools and techniques. Its not easy being an apparel manufacturer!
