I grew up with an oversized head and a passion for design. I've had a very specific style since I was a child, which made buying clothing hard for anyone that's not me. Buying a hat that fits me well and that I like is nearly impossible.
I went to school for design and ended up at a pretty cool tech company here in the Bay Area, California. The job was great, but I never felt completely fulfilled working for someone else, so I decided to move on from it without any real plan. All I knew is that I wanted to be my own boss and that I needed to utilize some skills I already had.
A few months into funemployment, I decided that e-commerce could be a nice blend of design (branding) and my internet skills, thanks to growing up with a computer. I realized I needed to learn the ropes of selling online, so I found a product that was cheap to manufacture so that if it didn't work out, I wouldn't be in a big hole. As an avid tennis player, I thought I could make tennis accessories and sell them on Amazon. This is where I learned all the basics of e-commerce, like designing, sourcing, marketing, and selling on Amazon. I'm still selling these products, but they didn't keep me interested enough to expand.
A year into this journey, I realized how tired I was of buying these really cool Snapback hats, only to have them look stretched out and shallow fitting on my head. That's when I decided it was time to use my newfound knowledge to create a hat company for people like myself.
It's been two years since I had the idea, and I've come a long way. It has been a rewarding experience, but a lot of work. I take pride in the amount of effort I've put in to get to where I am today. The most time-consuming part of the journey has been finding factories that can produce hats that live up to my high standards. I've filtered out over 30 factories and have had countless samples done to get the hat to where it is today.
The hats I sell here at Mammoth Headwear are the direct result of my obsession with quality. I want to thank you for trusting me when buying these hats for your big head. If you have any comments, ideas, or feedback, please reach out to me at:
