Revelrea Our Story About Us

 

Revelrea is a DC-based hat company, by women, for women, that loves running free and being bold.

We make luxe fitness caps and visors with chic designs, sweat-wicking fabric, and thoughtful features. All prints are hand-painted by Kelsey, the founder. Our products are for every female, no matter where she is on her personal health journey. The brand name Revelrea (a feminine play on the word “revelry”) symbolizes the drunken-like joy and freedom experienced in exercise. 

Our mission is to make unique and quality products and empower women to chase joy. We're thrilled that a portion of proceeds from each hat will go to a DC-based women's domestic abuse shelter.⠀

A NOTE FROM KELSEY

Thank you for visiting! Like you, I wear many hats - runner, wife, painter, lawyer, daughter, sun lover... 
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
While training for a half marathon, I needed extra sun protection for my face, but I couldn't find cute, feminine athletic hats. Visors especially felt outdated. It seemed like all athletic hats were designed for a man & repackaged for a woman – with plain colors, sports logos, or promo language. Sometimes they'd be pink, or sequined, but nothing felt designed to look pretty and be taken seriously. A man in the industry literally told me the mantra for female athleisure has been: "shrink & pink." Gross. I imagined a one-stop shop devoted to making pretty running & fitness hats for women.

Now, "cute visor" isn't an oxymoron. Each Revelrea hat is designed with hand-painted prints + thoughtful features + pure JOY. Because of our manufacturing process, the layout on every single hat is one-of-a-kind. ⠀

I've had the privilege of seeing a handful of women test & love Revelrea hats. So whether you're running, spinning, walking that cute pup, or just running errands - I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE HOW YOU wear them!
