Mariah Carey gets Nogginwear Old Glory Hat
"We were shocked and extremely honored when we received the call that our Old Glory hat was chosen for Mariah Carey & Jussie Smollett; we think Mariah and Jussie are amazing," says Mr. Weldon, Co-Founder & CEO. Weldon goes on to say the fact that a small company like Nogginwear was chosen for such a music powerhouse and best-selling recording artist like Mariah Carey has us so awestricken and it couldn't be done without great concert tour promoters like Rick Bartalini Presents.
Nogginwear is totally unique and different by not just designing and manufacturing a different premium retail quality limited edition series numbered hat each month for monthly hat subscribers but taking it up a notch with Limited Edition Series, the Artist Series and the recently added Hunting Series. What truly sets Nogginwear apart is all the hats are made in limited quantity as well and when they are gone they are not reproduced.
In the last few months Nogginwear has signed some of the most well-known award winning artists in the cartoon/comic book world who are credited for their work at Disney, Hanna-Barbera, DC Comics, Marvel Comics, The Simpsons, MAD magazine and more; kicking off the limited-edition artist series hats with award winning comic book creator, writer Stan Sakai, creator of Usagi Yojimbo. Our hunting series features Facebook personality and sensation Hillbilly Weatherman and our new food & cocktail series is kicking off with Spike TV's Bar Rescue Personality Chef Brian Duffy also seen on NBC Today Show and opening his new restaurant Flying Fish Crafthouse in Philadelphia, PA.
Chef Brian Duff (former Spike TV Bar Rescue & seen on The Today Show), a customer, says, "It's one of my faves." George Karalias, a customer, says, "The quality and detail is unbelievable on my Usagi hat."
The Nogginwear business model and culture are also about giving back through established partnerships with non-profit organizations like the National Cartoonists Society Foundation, which sponsors events like Cartooning for Kids at St. Jude's Hospital in Memphis and recently teamed up with Smile Train, an international children's charity with a sustainable approach to a single, solvable problem: cleft lip and palate.
"It's about doing something different and unique while having fun and providing a top-quality product and sharing it with our subscribers via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, not to mention it's a great gift for the hard to buy for person," says Mr. Weldon.
