About Us – The KimKaps Story
While working many long hours as a nurse in the OR, I loved my job but was so frustrated about looking ugly at work. The fiberglass disposable hats are not flattering on anyone. Not to mention they break your hair and let’s not forget about the beautiful line indention left on your forehead. One day a surgeon walked into my room with a cloth hat on. I was like wait just a minute…..why are the girls not wearing cloth hats? I ran home and looked all over online, there was literally nothing for women.
So I called my mom and we got to work designing our first scrubhat. My mom moved to America from England when she was 20 years old. While in England, she went to trade school as a seamstress. My childhood was spent sewing and watching my mom sew custom prom dresses, costumes, and wedding dresses.
