A passion for world travel and an enduring love for hats led San Diego-based friends and business partners Andrew Bleecher and Teresa Gardner to the Original Cotton Crotchet Hat® - that launched their business in Bali, Indonesia, in 1993. Although this wholesale company has grown to include a full team and sells to a wide range of boutiques and specialty chains, its original focus has not changed: to provide its customers with their favorite hats each season. San Diego Hat Co's strength is that they design and source all of their products. It can be said that their company is more about fashion than it is about hats. They promise their customers that they will constantly provide a better assortment of fashion trends -in color, style and fabric -with maximum functionality and value faster than their competition. They consistently set trends in hats.
