KimKaps was started by a surgical nurse longing for an alternative to the disposable blue "mops" she and the rest of the surgical team wore on their heads during their long hours in the OR. She knew these mops contain fiberglass, which damages and breaks hair, and that their disposable nature discourages environmentally-friendly practices. But most of all, she knew these mops are UGLY! She designed and began making 100% cotton scrub hats for herself out of the cutest and most durable fabrics she could find, and soon began outfitting the surgical teams in her hospital with her creations when her colleagues begged her to make them cuter in the OR, too! Since launching KimKaps in 2006, Kim and her creative team have brought a world of cute to the world of scrubs with distinct styles of scrub hats in dozens of fabulous fabric choices.
