About Stormy Kromer Factory Tour
Back in 1903, the Original Stormy Kromer Cap was built with quality fabric, carefully handcrafted in the U.S. It was authentic, rugged and durable - perfect for George "Stormy" Kromer, a hard-working railroad engineer. After repeatedly losing his cap on the windy locomotive, he asked his wife Ida to make him a new one, with a snug, pulldown earband to keep it in place. The popularity of that first cap launch a small and successful business. In 2001, the Jacquart family in Ironwood, Michigan, bought the company and brought Stormy Kromer to their thriving sewing factory - Jacquart Fabric Products. Today, we produce a full line of quality, rugged, American made outdoor apparel that is sold all over the world. We offer free tours of our factory every weekday at 1:30 pm - so you can see for yourself how Stormy Kromer caps are made, along with a variety of other products made in this industrial sewing facility. Our Factory Store and Museum is open Monday-Friday from 8:00-5:00 and Saturdays from 9:00-12:00.

We seemingly were the only people in our large tour group (so big it had to be split) who were not Stormy Kroger groupies, but that did not detract from our enjoyment of the tour. I love to see how things are made, and this...More

Seen these hats when growing up, now we know the history of how they came about. Tour was very good, about 50 minutes. Pictures to look at in the hallway. I would recommend it.

Great tour guide. The tour was very informative and interesting. The SK hats are the main attraction, but it was fun to hear and watch many other items made.
