About Us

Slouch Headwear was founded in the winter of 2013. We wanted some cute beanies for our son Hudson to wear during the cold Utah winters but we had a hard time finding a beanie that was high quality, stylish and comfortable, so we made it! Word started to spread and we quickly got several requests for our beanies, and that's when Slouch Headwear was born. Tens of thousands of beanies later, we are excited to continue providing you with high quality beanies for you and your little ones. Each slouch beanie is made with love and attention to detail by moms here in Utah. We hand pick all of the fabrics we use to ensure comfort and quality.

Thank you for supporting our family business and for shopping small!
