Daniel Kraus, the founder of Hyphead, used to struggle with sleep: he felt he needed fresh air to get a good night's rest, but he always had a cool head at night. One way or another, he would be deprived of his basic right to good sleep.
One day he remembered his grandmother, who used to extol the merits of nightcaps. So he started experimenting with all kinds of accessories on his head at bedtime. He could see that there was indeed magic in this lost tradition, but none of his attempts were exactly the right ones: some were too tight, some too bulky, some still too hot and some others fell apart too easily.
He then embarked on a long quest to design the perfect nightcap: one that would stay in place and keep the head warm without suffocating. One that would be just fantastic, neither too cold nor too hot. And one that looked good: just because it's bedtime doesn't mean you have to compromise on style.
And so Hyphead was born. And Daniel slept in peace forever.
