NKreased Designs was established in 1998 as Norener's Best Hats and scarves by Founder and Manufacturer Norener Kelley when her legal firm sponsored their annual Holiday Crafts Fair in their offices.
Norener was a designer of women and men's fashions for over two decades. She found herself wanting to enter the Fair but had no ideas to show. The problem was there were no warm-weather fabrics that were light-weighted as well. Fashion was very black, gray and brown for the previous years. And the fashions made the winters seem even more cold , gray and grim.
Norener found a way to make approximately 40 fleece scarves and two fleece hats for the Crafts Fair. The sale was a hitch. She found herself selling every scarf, the two lonely hats and orders for more and more of the same.
From there, Norener launched her hat and scarf collection, developing and making several hat designs, including tams, pillbox hats, ski caps, and Norener was on her way. She also created a line of accessories for children with the same theme: sunshine bright and airy, with the fleece flair. Nkrease designs makes everything in America, and most of the fabrics are predominantly made in America. To this was added mittens and gloves, fleece capes and wraps and sundry other items. The difference from other manufacturers was Norener's flair for fleece. bright, airy, washable, fabric coming directly from the original mill and the warmest fabric ever with great colors and prints for every member of the family.
Well, here we are 12 years later, developing and manufacturing every winter, which has evolved into a well-planned, well-developed fleece product made in America.
