About Us

Welcome to my world of handcrafted accessories, dread tam hats and slouchy hats for every age and walk of life

"It started with a hook and a skein of yarn" 
and it has been an exciting and rewarding long journey. 
My name is Angelika and I am the woman behind Purple Sage Designz LLC :)
Many years of crocheting, knitting and sewing experience will bring you quality handmade dread tam hats, slouchy beanies and accessories made with good vibes.
Purple Sage Designz has been in business since 2005 and I have been selling on many online venues. I still maintain shops on Etsy, Artfire and my original stand-alone website
It has been a blessing to take my dream and turn it into a full time business. 
Ponca City, rural Oklahoma, has become my home after moving from Germany to the United States to live with my Native American husband. English is my second language.
Inspiration for naming "my crochet company" Purple Sage Designz was not only the unique healing property of purple sage but also its significance in spiritual cleansing ceremonies. It has always been dear to my heart. 
"Designz" was created in order to avoid any copyright or trademark issues and is not "gangsta speak" for "designs".
I like to consider my beanies Hippie Hats, and there seem to be a lot of cliches or definitions about what makes a person a hippie or hippy. I personally see myself within the tradition of simple lifestyle, recycling and re-using whenever possible, working at home in the as a  "cottage industry". The green hippie if you wish.
Thanks for looking and supporting the independent craftspeople!
