Welcome to old and new friends alike, thanks for visiting. I am a hat maker from Chicago and my name is Kate Strong. I have an art degree in Fibers, which helps me look at polar fleece through an artist’s eye. I use the stretch and body of the fabric along with different hand working techniques to get my vision across. Needless to say, I love hats and l look to different time periods and cultures to feed my passion.
Quality materials are always the best starting point. The polar fleece that I use is the best quality pill-free fleece available. Easy care is important as well the amount of stretch in each hat, which helps it, fit a wide range of head sizes more comfortably.
Look around; I hope it is helpful in finding the right hat for you. Check out my show schedule and if you like what you see here you can follow and "like" Strong Wear on Facebook. Let me know what you think and feel free to call or email if questions come up. Thanks for stopping by.
