Living in one of the most beautiful parts of Minnesota, we are nestled between tall bluffs and the mightly Mississippi River in what is often called the Driftless Region.

When designing this hat, the simple cable design is a reminder of the changing bluff landscape, forests of trees, rock formations and river currents.
