Wearable. Collectable. Tradable. Patch Hats Launches First-of-Its-Kind Kids' Customizable Accessories Line

MENDHAM, N.J., April 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Spawned from an adult's love of a well-worn favorite hat, Patchworks Apparel, LLC, today launched Patch Hats™, a unique new line of high-quality customizable baseball-style hats designed for children aged three to seven that feature a series of removable, collectable and tradable character patches.  Patchworks, based in Mendham, NJ, also announced its support of and affiliation with RC24, the charitable foundation established and directed by Robinson Cano of the NY Yankees and his mother to benefit children in the Dominican Republic, the United States and around the world.

Patch Hats (PH) feature lovable cartoon characters on circular patches that are affixed by Velcro to the front of hats and are interchangeable on an array of colored hats.  The patches come three-to-a-pack with each hat purchased.  The richly illustrated patches, known as Patch Pals™, have been exclusively developed for Patch Hats, and come complete with brief background information about each character, making them educational, informative and fun. The initial release includes 24 characters, including Connor the Frog, Bill the Rhino, Kimberly the Dolphin and Zack the Monkey. Patchworks will continue to expand the roster of characters, hat colors and retail distribution of the product line in the coming months.

"Patch Hats successfully combine two factors that help define childhood needs and interests – collecting, and controlling what you wear," said Patchworks Chairman David Jurist, who is also the president and co-founder of the Tomorrows Children's Fund national charitable organization.  "It's a simple but powerful concept -- the product line is novel, and hits at the heart of these two profound truths.  In this respect, Patch Hats is highly appealing to young children, and we think the concept can easily translate to older children as well."

1,000 hats with custom-made patches featuring Cano's image donated to kids; company helped facilitate ambulance donation

Patchworks executives traveled to the Dominican Republic in January with Robinson Cano of the NY Yankees in support of Cano's RC24 Foundation.  The company donated 1,000 customized Patch Hats featuring Cano's image, swing and RC24 logo to needy children in Cano's hometown of San Pedro de Macoris.  Working with RC24, Patchworks recently helped facilitate the donation of several ambulances to the town, and plans to continue supporting RC24, the mission of which is to touch the lives of underprivileged children in the Dominican Republic and around the world to improve their opportunities and better their future.

"I absolutely love Patch Hats, and am grateful to Patchworks for their generous donation to RC24 and the children of the Dominican," said Cano.  "The kids love these fun, educational characters, and the hats are beautiful and not quite like anything I've seen before."
