Back in 2002, Ed and Stephanie Raftery said "I do" and began their married life together. In the busy year that followed, they welcomed thier first child to the world and they started the TrailHeads® business.

Working out of their tiny one bedroom apartment, they combined their savings with a grant from the NYS Commission for the Blind and Visually Handicapped in order to pull together their first collection, including their famous ponytail hats. They struggled through numerous production challenges, managed to get a handful of retailers to actually place orders, and then they shipped almost everything late. But through it all they remained confident, at least most of the time, that they had some good ideas and a solid plan. Mark Charpentier, a colleague from Ed’s days working for Cannondale Corporation, joined TrailHeads to head up the sales efforts. They were on the trail and moving forward! Along the way, they added a second daughter, relocated to Kent, CT, and steadily built a small team of talented people.

From their solar powered office in the northwest hills of Litchfield County, you’ll find the TrailHeads team passionately working to develop the highest quality, innovative apparel and accessories for outdoor fun and adventure.
