our story.

HATX was created in 2017 by two siblings, Laura & Andrea. The project began when Laura, newly recovered from a decade-long heroin addiction, was released from prison right before the holidays. With no money to purchase gifts for her family, she started crocheting hats (pictured below). If you cross the “E” out of “HATE", Andrea said to Laura, it spells, “HAT!” and shortly after, Laura started selling HATX hats online. Three years later, Laura's fingers could not keep up with the demand, so the two designed a new line of beanies and snapbacks. HATX has been an integral part of Laura’s recovery and has stitched the bond of the two siblings back together. The company’s mission? To keep the warm-hearted, warm-headed.
