About this project
The Hippinie beanie extends giving warmth to your head, neck & face, reducing your cold weather gear to one!
Hippinies design team has worked hard for over a year to create the perfect all in one beanie that looks and feels great! With Hippinie you'll never be un-prepared again when the temperatures drop and the cold chills kick in.
We tested a lot of samples to find our simple but eye catching colors, and with Hippinies unisex design, you can mix and match knowing you'll always look great.
No more annoying seams to itch and scratch your head!
Hippinie is made on the same machines that socks are made for a seamless finish that's comfortably soft to the touch, and feels great against your skin! Seamless not only feels better against your head, but it looks great too.
Hippinie is stitched on the sock machine one strand at a time creating one long seamless tube of material. After it come off the sock machine the beanie ends are created by doubling up and hemming the ends (5") to create an extra layer of warmth, comfort and durability.
We need help to make our minimum purchase order to start manufacturing and get Hippinie to market. We were able to put up 90% of the money needed ourselves, but to get the last little bit we needed your help.
Kickstarter has a great community of amazing people, and we are very grateful to them for make this possible. Thanks backers & Kickstarter for being so aweasome!
We have been testing out Hippinie for over a year and its truly been a great beanie. From the mountain tops to the beach, its kept us warm. Even on the go it stays on and is always there when you need it!
"I spend most of my time outdoors and I've been wearing a beanie almost everyday for the past ten years. I love them so much that I have a beanie for every season and altitude, even summer!
When I'm out hiking hiking I eventually heat up and start to sweat, and when I do, the beanie has to come off. I always try to pack light and don't always have a pack to store my cap, so I'm often left stuffing it in my pockets or carrying it by hand.
I have lost a ton of beanies because the've fallen out of my pocket or because I've left them sitting somewhere when heading out. It's a horrible feeling losing a favorite beanie, and almost they're impossible to replace because new styles are always coming out.
Hippinie has not only given me the additional cover I needed on the go, but its easy to hang on to and store so it doesn't get left behind.
We are currently working with our manufacturer for our next line up of Hippinies and versatile outerwear. We have some very excited things coming in the near future and our Kickstarter fans will be first to hear the news. Jump in and get your feet wet, the adventure awaits!"
Risks and challenges
We wanted Hippinie to be a seamless design. The only way to do that was on a sock machine.
Not all sock manufactures are made equal. For the past year we have tested samples from multiple manufacturers before we found one that not only met our expectations for quality, but has far exceeded them.
Everything is ready to rock-n-roll to deliver your seamless Hippinie on time. We know that unforeseen circumstances are possible, so we will keep you up to date as things progress and we move forward.
