Flipside Hats of Portland is fashion with a purpose. “We use upcycled materials to create long lasting, limited edition apparel,” says owner, Jacob Woller. “Our hats are made in America with organic materials and we support US workers while minimizing world waste.”

Their forward-looking posture has also been helping the company during the pandemic. “We pivoted from hats to making masks and have been focused on creating American made cloth masks for frontline workers and at-risk communities,” says Woller. “We partner with community organizations to ensure people are getting protected.”

Naturally, Woller and Flipside Hats was thrilled to partner with Columbia Bank’s Pass It On Project. Excited to give back, Flipside Hats is providing free facemasks to customers and Columbia Bank is paying the bill. “We are passing it on to our customers who have kept us going,” he says. “With Columbia Bank’s support, we are creating thousands of masks to provide to our customers and make sure they are fashionable and safe.”
