Quality goods that honor the resilience, kindness & creativity of the Midwest.
Hi! We’re Cassie and Stacy, co-founders of Hangry Hippos, a Midwest brand committed to creating quality goods that honor the resilience, kindness and creativity of the Midwest. The idea for Hangry Hippos started quite simply as a creative outlet. A way to flex our creative muscles outside the constraints of our day-to-day life. We found ourselves hunting for apparel that reflected the pride we hold for our Midwestern roots and came up empty handed. So we decided to create our own. We designed the shirts we wanted to wear and turns out you wanted to wear them too.
Did you know we actually MAKE many of our products? Well we do! All our products are designed and packaged right here in Des Moines, Iowa. We screenprint our t-shirts, sweatshirts and greeting cards in our basement studio, cut and assemble our own banners, and work with trusted partners to create our hats and stickers. Keeping the production close to home allows us to ensure a quality product reaches your hands.
As Hangry continues to grow, so has our vision and product offering. From tees to hats to stickers … and beyond. At the core of every Hangry product is our passion to create quality, well designed goods. To bring the old school Midwest mindset into the landscape of today -- Where a hello awaits everyone you meet. Where neighbor is the only label that really matters. Where a rising tide lifts all boats. Where a side of ranch accompanies every meal. Regardless of where we go next, that mission will remain the same.
