Collection: About Us

Our story begins in the town of Marion, nestled in the heart of the North Carolina mountains, where a craft beer taproom stood as a beacon of community spirit. This taproom, founded by a visionary named Sarah Jacobs, was the first of its kind in this tight-knit community. It quickly became a beloved gathering place, where locals and visitors alike could savor artisanal brews and share unforgettable moments. But the year 2020 brought with it an unexpected and formidable challenge, as the world was gripped by the COVID-19 pandemic. The very essence of community and conviviality that Sarah's taproom embodied was threatened. Forced to confront this adversity head-on, Sarah realized she needed to pivot, adapt, and discover a new way to keep her business afloat. In a stroke of ingenious creativity and audacious boldness, Sarah Jacobs embarked on a journey that would change her life and the fate of her beloved taproom forever. She turned her talents to crafting leather patch hats, each one meticulously handmade and imbued with the spirit of Marion's resilient community. These hats, known for their unique blend of rugged craftsmanship and individuality, became the embodiment of the town's enduring spirit in the face of adversity. As Sarah began selling her leather patch hats online, the response from her loyal patrons and newfound admirers was overwhelming. Orders began pouring in from all corners of the country, and soon Sarah found herself packaging and shipping thousands of hats each week.
