Made Like They Used To

Dreamed, Designed & Crafted In The USA

Driven by a headwear market that seemed limited and stale at the time, The Ampal Creative launched it's first full collection in 2007. Over the last 12 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 - has been exclusively Made in USA. We search local jobbers and manufactures 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

Distinguished Goods For Lovers Of The Outdoors & Roads Less Traveled.
