A Southern girl, Barbara was born and raised in Atlanta, GA and now lives in Dallas, TX with her husband, three kids, and bulldog Mable.

Her favorite things in life are simply spending time with her family and good friends. People love Barbara for her love of life, and her honest, fun personality (as long as there is coffee).  

Frustrated with finding a cute hat that fit correctly, she launched Barbara Cobb and her line of Brim hats two and a half years ago from her living room. The main idea was to make a stylish, comfortable hat that fit well. These original hats are great for the beach, sporting events, or just around town, all while giving sun protection and warmth (fall and winter hats) with a sense of style.  When customers put their own hat on for the first time Barbara loves to see them come alive with excitement. It’s better than jewelry or lipstick, it’s a statement piece that makes a girl feel like she’s the “belle of the ball”. As one client described after receiving her first hat, “This is portable joy!”.
