    R.I.P.

    "You shoulda been here yesterday..." 

    Laid to rest & never spoken again, but scarily appropriate in current times.  I had no idea, when I drew this up last fall, how the joke would lose humor in reality.

    The Ampal Creative : Made in the

    USA

    Durable Handmade in USA hats & caps for the discerning surfer/skater.

    Driven by a headwear market that seemed limited and stale at the time, The Ampal Creative launched its first full collection in 2007. Over the last 13 years we have developed a diverse following and become known for quality and attention to detail.

    Since 2010, all Ampal hats, socks, beanies patches - everything - have been exclusively Made in USA. We search local jobbers and manufacturers for premium textiles and unique prints. Often, we find a single roll of deadstock material and make as many hats as we can from it. Being 100% hands on in all stages of development, for each hat, allows us to ensure the highest level of quality.

    "Made Like They Used To" is more than just a saying for us.  Its how we try to make every product that we release.  "Back in the day" clothing & most products were built to last, not disposable purchases that don't make it a year.  We have a personal collection of Ampal hats that have seen years of adventures & abuse - they all have a great worn character, like a great old pair of jeans, but still have a few more years of sun protection in them.

     Distinguished Goods for Lovers of the Outdoors & Roads Less Traveled.
