It started over twenty years ago with a sense of humour, a talented painter and her restless husband. They created a line of aprons based on Alice’s artwork. They quickly turned this cottage business into the company Hatley, supplying retailers with the best cow and pig aprons the world had ever seen. Cows and pigs gave birth to moose and bears, aprons led to gifts and clothing. They happily handed the reins to their three sons who quickly transformed and grew the company. They developed an extensive children’s line, created comfy women’s sleepwear and expanded into the gift market with napkins, kitchen textiles, mugs and much, much more.
