I am a Lint-Head focused on making the best USA/Union Made beanies on the planet.

My Story

Motivated by guilt and redemption. I have been in the apparel industry in one form or another for most of my career. I stood by as my industry outsourced most of their manufacturing to China and I did/said nothing until now. Like most people at the time, I did not understand the ramifications of outsourcing to China and was seduced by ridiculously low prices. Why were the prices so low in China? An unfair playing field, illegal currency manipulation, subsidized exports, no environmental regulation, and unprecedented human rights abuses. The result of the last decade of outsourcing? Roughly 64,000 American factories have closed and 6 million jobs have been lost, mostly to factories overseas.
