Team spirit, good looks & social responsibility
Headcovers in your school colors with your team mascot may not make you play better, but you will certainly look better! Plus, you'll help a non-profit organization and a service-disabled veteran owned business. Head turning bag and social responsibility ... now that's hard to beat on or off the course.
The idea to focus on golf teams came while watching local high schools practice and play at my home course. I saw great looking bags, matching shirts and hats but an absolute hodgepodge of headcovers -- club manufacturers, far off courses, puppets, you name it. These schools spent time and money to create a team look with matching bags, shirts, and hats, but they still didn't really look "finished". Having just started making headcovers (a little free time and a bad winter lead to interesting hobbies), I knew how to complete their team look with headcovers in their school colors with embroidered mascots and even player names.
Player and coach excitement and the resulting demand meant I needed larger scale, professional production. Not only was local industrial sewing available (a bit of a tradition here in Dayton, Ohio), it was through a non-profit organization -- the Dayton Sewing Collaborative (see below). Their mission is making sewing a career option by teaching people to become industrial sewists. The instructors generate funds to accomplish this mission by sewing our headcovers. Embroidery is done by a disabled veteran-owned business (retired Navy pilot). I stay personally involved by listening to you the customer and making improvements in everything we do -- please drop me an e-mail if you want further information or have some feedback.

Our headcovers got some air time on our local news (at the 0:07 and again at the 1:20 in this clip). Very proud to have these good folks producing our headcovers. A great way to give back -- "look good and do good!" -- something golf has always done well.
