About Fat Hat Clothing Company

Based in Quechee, Vermont, Fat Hat Clothing Company comes from humble beginnings. The idea for Fat Hat started when founder Joan Ecker’s mother began sending her pieces of wool fabric leftover from her swatch books. With no experience or background in fashion, Ecker came up with what would be known as The Original Fat Hat.

Ecker toured small craft shows every weekend, displaying her work and enthusiastically demonstrating her hats. As a result, Joan’s hats caught the attention of a New York Times writer. So much so, he wrote an article about them in the paper, and Joan’s idea took off.

41 years later, the Fat Hat brand is still thriving and has grown to include other types of apparel. Now, Fat Hat is recognized for its easy, comfy clothing that’s all made in the United States. To this day, Joan’s original philosophy on fashion rings true — if you’re comfortable with what you’re wearing, you’ll be comfortable with who you are.

To honor Ecker’s mother who passed away from lung cancer in 1987, Fat Hat Clothing Company began donating Fat Hats to chemo patients across the country. This project has enriched the mission of Fat Hat and the lives of Ecker and her team, increasing their impact and putting deeper meaning behind fashion.

Stylish Pieces Meant To Make You Feel Terrific

During her time owning and operating Fat Hat Clothing Company, Ecker admits she’s met very few women who are comfortable in their own bodies. She creates clothing items that allow women to dress more like themselves and feel at ease doing so.

The Fat Hat Clothing Company offers items that are ideal for several occasions. Whether you’re shopping for an outfit to wear to a casual event or a girl’s night out, or are just looking for something comfortable and stylish to wear around the house, our inventory of Fat Hat items will meet your needs.

A Brand with a Purpose

When shopping for new clothes, many buyers care about the brand just as much as they care about the actual items. Keeping with our mission of sustainable fashion, Paloma Clothing is pleased to sell Fat Hat clothing because of the brand’s upstanding values. Additionally, their mantra of “designed in Vermont, made in the USA” demonstrates their dedication to producing eco-friendly clothing.

Fat Hat believes that it’s not only how clothes are produced, but how they make a woman feel when she puts them on, that matters. Fat Hat clothing is for women who want to be comfortable in their own skin. It’s a brand that creates clothing that loves your body just the way it is.

Ecker states that Fat Hat Clothing Company is not selling attire, but instead a sense of humor, an independent Vermont lifestyle, and a comfortable attitude about dressing. This perspective changes the narrative about fashion to promote more confidence and well-being for women.
