Shleggwear started as a genderless, independent fashion studio in 2021, founded by designer and creative Sofia Chang. The studio specializes in crocheted hats, each piece a sculpture of its own. Shleggwear’s bold and playful hats are made from recycled yarn and fabrics, all one-offs. Each piece is designed and crafted by hand at the Shleggwear studio in Los Angeles.
Sustainability and slow fashion are at the forefront of Shleggwear’s ethos. Shleggwear uses mainly vintage and second-hand materials. The process of creating a piece is intimate, personal, and full of intention. Shleggwear is actively finding new ways to produce carefully and sustainably in all parts of the process, including packaging, sourcing, and creating.
