Skida is more than just a headwear and accessories dynamo. They’re a 5-letter word for FUN.
In 2008 when founder, Corrine Prevot picked up some patterned stretch fabrics to make hats for her cross-country ski teammates at Burke Academy in Vermont, she didn’t know she’d be starting her first business. Skida’s playful, moisture-wicking, wind-cutting hats broke ground with the New England ski community and snowballed into the powerhouse it is today. Armed with an incredible work ethic, fantastic technical fabrics, and a mission to bring people together, encourage play, and generate smiles, Prevot started sewing for the masses. As the demand for these hats grew, new products joined the line to keep everyone warm and colorful. You’ll now find Skida accessories far beyond the slopes participating in myriad avenues of outdoor fun from cycling to ice fishing.
Upon graduating from Middlebury College in 2013, Prevot took her talents and her toques to Burlington, Vermont, and set up shop in the south-end arts district. As a company, Skida strives for a fresh perspective, limited-edition products, and is committed to local production and sustainability. A brand to look and feel good in, everything is produced in the illustrious Northeast Kingdom, supporting local cottage industry sewing. In their production, Skida utilizes recycled materials whenever possible and cuts their fabrics in a strategic manner to best use every single bit. This allows them to provide an ever-changing collection of fun, fresh prints with peace of mind, knowing that less than 1% of their fabric is wasted in the process. Skida wholeheartedly believes manufacturing their product line locally solidifies their roots to the community and is a tangible way to reduce waste and the impact of shipping materials.
