Founded on the mean streets of Brooklyn almost 20 years ago, Appaman has grown into one of the most iconic children's clothing companies. Appaman is inspired by, and named after, the childhood companion of founder and designer Harald Husum.
While growing up in Norway, Husum befriended a corduroy ape named Appaman. Together they traveled the fields and fjords of their native land, sharing many fantastic adventures. Appaman reflects the whimsical spirit of those youthful times and celebrates the unbreakable bond between a boy and his ape.
