Yes. Our founder, Dana Glaeser, was born in Nashville, TN but shortly afterwards he and his parents returned to Alabama where they were both from—his mother, from Sheffield and his father from Decatur. Dana was raised in Montgomery and Huntsville, AL and later in Titusville, FL after his father was relocated from Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville to the Kennedy Space Center. His parents, grandparents, great grandparents, etc... were all born and raised in small towns in North Alabama. Today, Dana lives in New York City where Slightly Alabama's design studio is located. The rest of his family is still down South.

Yes. Every product is hand cut, assembled, stitched and finished by one of three leather artisans (including founder and creative director, Dana Glaeser) in our studio in Ridgewood, NY. Our leather is sourced from three American tanneries: Horween® (Chicago, IL), Hermann Oak (St. Louis, MO), and Wickett & Craig (Curwensville, PA).
We operate our studio out of the Knickerbocker MFG Co. factory in Ridgewood, NY. This 80 year-old hat factory was converted into a fully functioning design studio, garment factory and collaborative work space by three business parters—Andrew Livingston, Kyle Mosholder and Dan McRorie, each designers and makers of their own brands. On a selective basis, they've invited like-minded people to share the 8,000 square foot studio space.

The majority of our products are made from bovine (i.e. cow) hides and originate from one of three U.S. tanneries—Horween, Hermann Oak and Wickett & Craig.
