Kate Strong’s affinity for fiber arts continues a long tradition in her family which included many skilled needleworkers. Her original hat designs are adorned with satin ribbons, vintage buttons and other flourishes, which make these one-of-a-kind head toppers a joy to wear!

She began her hat company with only children’s hats and later expanded the line to include hats for women, teens, babies and swimming. Her hats are made with highest quality non-pilling fleece available.

Kate explored various ethnic and period influences in clothing design while while working towards her degree in fiber arts. She also noticed how successfully her grandmother used hats to add a dash of personality to her wardrobe.
