EVERY SINGLE ITEM IS HANDMADE by us April & Richer, Ape & Bird ,( two people) on reclaimed industrial sewing machines.
Made by us meaning...hand cut, hand made, carefully stitched... NOT bought wholesale and slapped a logo onto. We make every single thing in this shop from scratch.

Handmade soft brims. If you are looking for heavy plastic insert brims, like those cold sweatshops make, click off now. If you are looking for a one of a kind unique cap with heart and soul, thank you, you are in the right place.

Both Ape and Bird have an extreme dislike for the coldness of factory made.
We feel that its better to be a little off center and be one of a kind, than part of the perfect pack.

About

Rhode Island's Two of a Kind

Ape and Bird have been a crafty couple/ maker team / best friends for over ten years. We met working in a basil greenhouse in southeast New England years ago. Now have a live/work studio in downtown Providence RI.

Ape & Bird is April and Richer.
April loves to sew and weave and has been doing so for years. She is a self-taught stitcher and just wouldn't know what else to do if it wasnt for sewing.
Richer is a designer and woodworker, skateboarder and ukulele maker. He feverishly comes up with new little projects and woodworking ideas.

We had our solo etsy shops for a bit, but together here on Ape& Bird is where the two meld and merge into the best of both worlds.

With a strong love for both vintage fabric and machinery, each hat is hand crafted with extreme care and love. Carefully handcut, then surged on reclaimed industrial machinery, our hats are human built and factory strong.

We love to search small fabric shops , thrift shores and consignment shops for awesome fabrics.

We are excited about the feel and love that goes into each hat. With our collective sewing skills and love for hand-craftmanship, they feel special, warm and are truly one of a kind. Each hat comes wrapped and with a serial number and handwritten note.

Both Ape and Bird have an extreme dislike for the coldness of factory made. Its better to be a little off center and be one of a kind than part of the perfect pact.
