Rocks and Salt Rockin' Etsy

Back in 2007 our friend Kathy told us about a cool site called Etsy; she really really wanted us to set up a shop to sell our handmade hats. We knew almost nothing about computers at that time - we'd only had our first one ever for about a year, and didn't even have a cell phone.
In January of 2008 Kathy insisted that she was going to help us set up shop, and thus began our Etsy journey.

(we) Sara and Phil met cooking in the natural foods restaurant scene of Brooklyn at the dawn of the Millennium. In 2005 we moved from cooking and baking to sewing hats, and then bags and skirts.

Now, after ten years of experience, we have an established line of distinctive cut and sew hats for the ladies and the gents. From conception to completion, we design and handcraft all of our accessories in our Brooklyn, NY studio, coupling contemporary urban sensibility with timeless style and functionality.

We love shape, lines, and texture; and draw inspiration from the extraordinary array of fine fabrics to be found in NYC's still vibrant Garment District, as well as from the dynamic artistic community of Bushwick, Brooklyn where we live and work, and where you're as likely to encounter an impromtu circus on the street as a pop-up artisanal food market, or a pick-up soccer game.

We are also on on Etsy with our fun and functional tea towels at

Welcome, all of our items are handcrafted and high quality. Everything offered in our Etsy shop is new and unworn.

Not sure about your head measurement?
If you don't have a measuring tape you can use a length of string and then measure that against a ruler.
Measure around your head from the center of your forehead, to just above your ears, to just under the bone that juts out at the back of your head, and back to the center of your forehead. You'll want to measure your head where the bottom edge of the hat will sit.
