Custom Crowns: Versatile Fashion by Aisha Anime

Fashion is dictated by the latest trends on the catwalk and even picking up a jumper from the bargain bin shows hints from a past season when that jumper was based on a design that was popular, Custom crowns is streetwear that aims to delete the beginning. Using their velcro passion to create 100's of designs so you don't have to be left with one look.

Expertly crafted; with attention to detail, form and functionality. With our Custom Crowns velcro snapbacks and truckers, you take control. Create your style. Customise your crown. The (capslaps) patches features their own signature designs in collaboration with independent artists, familiar brands and even take bespoke commissions. Why should fashion be limited?

Kickstarter launching soon but they have already had people snap up their hats ; such as Ed Sheeran, THE FIRST KINGS (X Factor), KORR-A and SNOOCHIE SHY.

The team behind Custom Crowns started out with a shared love of fashion, design and art. Collectively,  tired of how generic the caps offered by so many companies were becoming and even though the cap market is booming we felt their was room for a more niche product that would encompass the individuality that so many of us crave these days. 

They spent time researching and sourcing materials that would give them confidence that they could offer something different to anything currently on the market. 

Through their innovative design concept they wanted to give their customers something they will love and cherish and rush to show their friends. As importantly wanted to create an ethical business that gives back to the local community while simultaneously supporting many talented artists from around the world.
