You may find the F-18 Super Hornet favorited as product examples within the shop! ;) I’ve been immersed into the military lifestyle for my entire adult life and...well...God Bless America.

How Altitude Accessories was born:
It started with a bow in a Japanese NICU....
From early 2017 to 2020, my husband and I were stationed in Japan. To sum up our time there...our first baby was born, my husband deployed...a lot, and I worked tirelessly at obtaining my Masters in Integrated Marketing Communications.
Hours before we were supposed to board a plane to move back to the United States, I went into preterm labor with my second child two months early. She was born in a Japanese hospital in Hiroshima and stayed in the NICU for 30 days.
My last days in Japan were spent sitting next to my daughters incubator. I knew I needed to do something to keep my mind off of everything. So, I started cutting fabric by hand and made hair bows for all of the Japanese babies in the NICU. Including my little Remi. By the time it was our turn to take our baby home for good, my bows were on every single NICU incubator. I remember how it made me feel and I couldn't wait to make more!
One hair bow lead to another, which lead to Altitude Accessories’ first product…the classic leather aviation hair bow. I saw a need for custom aviation accessories the whole family could get excited about. Mixing my drive with my passion…Altitude Accessories was born.
Thank you for supporting a military spouse and Veteran owned business!
