The idea has always been simple – to deliver caps of high quality with custom branding. Ready to sell.
Our story began in 2013…
when two brothers, Aswad and Asim Khandker, wanted to wear caps representing their own local basketball club. As they searched for customized merchandise, the lack of range they encountered sparked the idea of creating Frontplay Headwear. They wanted to help other organizations find what they themselves were looking for; high-quality caps with a unique design to represent an organizational identity.
With our founders having their roots in Bangladesh, they started to look for cap manufacturers in Bangladesh and finally found one cap manufacturer who could help them producing small batches of caps with 150 pcs minimum per design. After a couple of years when business started to take off, the founders found an additional and more professional cap manufacturer in Bangladesh who makes caps for bigger well-known brands and could help them with bigger batches. Since three years back, communication with the cap factory in Bangladesh is a daily task. Our founders are operationally involved in many steps of the process and they communicate in Bengali with the factory, why the relationship is even stronger.
Until this day, we still see this as the beginning of our journey. While we thought that we knew everything about caps, the complexity would surprise most. The shapes, heights, materials, names, and styles can be rather confusing once you get into the nitty-gritty. Fashion changes, new materials get popular, new logo application style is developed. We have finally understood that we will never be fully learned in this field and we are enjoying working with caps every single day.
