The Meshugenah Hat Company,llc was founded in 2015 by twin sisters, Marcia Press and Carla Press.
Both have a unique sense of fashion and design inherited from their mother. Carla is a self-taught sewer with a great flare for creativity and whimsy. She learned her craft through persistence and vision. Marcia is a trained painter and designer, specializing in color and texture. Her experience as a textile/wallpaper stylist and art director taught her to interpret color and fashion trends. They just love hats! They started with one vintage pattern and from there developed their own styles. Currently they have 8 different styles. Their signature is that all of their hats are made from high end textiles (frequently vintage and natural fiber), they are reversible, and they can be styled in a variety of ways.There isn’t much the sisters don’t enjoy about what they are doing. They love sourcing and choosing new fabrics,creating new designs and combinations, and talking shop. But their favorite aspect of the business is meeting the customers. They are so rewarded when a customer finds the right hat. Often passers bys will admire the hats and then say, “But I am not a hat wearer.” The sisters' feeling is that she just hasn’t met the right hat! Happily, when given the opportunity (aka “the Challenge”), they have reformed some!
