We believe in Quality. It's what we strive for in every product we design. Our journey started in 2009 from a small studio in Queens, NY. We developed a team of designers with a drive to create timeless products with a focus on durability. Since then, we've produced headwear, apparel and denim - All designed and created by our team in NYC. Each product is hand crafted and ensured to last.
This project will take our even further by introducing you to a Hat which is crafted with a Ring Spun Acrylic/wool combo. This is the first time such a supreme fiber has been used for an everyday beanie. The result is an incredibly soft, versatile Hat that you can feel 100% proud of wearing. What we came up with is an amazing feeling Hat which is anti-pilling and waterproof.
YES, if you are a USA based backer- you can get Cuzzie by Christmas! We have an initial 300 beanies we produced for product testing, and they are simply amazing. Be one of the first 300 backers, and back by December 15th to qualify!
A quality product must be created with the world's best components. We teamed up with an 32 year old yarn mill in North Carolina to source our textile. Our unique technique spins acrylic and wool twice as strong as any other hat on the market. The result of this is a beanie which is soft to the touch and extremely versatile.
We wanted this hat to not only feel amazing, but also sustain you for years to come. The fibers which compose the hat are ring spun in the weaving process. This type of process is typically used on long lasting dry goods such as denim.
In the ring spun process, the strands in the fibers are continuously twisted and thinned making a very fine rope of cotton fibers. The twisting makes the short hairs of cotton stand out, resulting in a stronger yarn with a significantly softer textile.
After researching dozens of wools and fibers, we selected a functional mohair wool and acrylic blend. Unlike most synthetic fibers, mohair wool is hygroscopic. It absorbs water vapor from its surrounding environment far more effectively than other common apparel fibers. Wool can absorb up to 35% of its weight before feeling wet and clinging to the skin.
Tightly ring spun fibers allow Cuzzie to retain shape and size regardless of head shape or size- we call this bounce back fabric. Our hat also contains 4% lycra, which partners great with wool to give a full range stretch, while the ring spun fibers allow shape retention.
The versatility is what makes Cuzzie an ideal hat for anyone. Wear it while going for your morning run or on your way to work. Push the hat back for a modern look while lounging. Keep it long when you need your ears fully covered, fold it upwards when it's warm. It's all about the possibiltles.
Our team has spent nearly 8 months perfecting the Cuzzie Hat and tested its functionality through various weather conditions. This has become more than a passion, but rather a mission to bring quality goods back. We want to ensure outdoor fanatics like us never have to get soaked in the rain or frozen in the snow. If for any reason you are not satisfied with the quality of your hat, we'll replace the hat for you. If the hat gets damaged due to the weather or loses it's texture, we will be more than happy to replace the hat for you! We're putting a guarantee on that.
