At the Women's March LA

Posted on January 26, 2017 by Amazing Capes

With over 750,000 in attendance the women's march in Los Angeles was an overwhelming show of superheroes. Without a single arrest, the crowds illustrated the popular voice of our nation and the ethos and common ground so many of us share. Overwhelmingly so, it was a great day for expressing good over evil, enthusiasm over apathy and positivity above despair.  As events unfold in the days ahead, let's always remind ourselves that we the people, have power. 

Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek. -Barack Obama

The pledge that comes with every Amazing Cape...

Posted on January 18, 2016 by Amazing Capes

The owner of every Amazing Cape is asked to uphold the following pledge:

I promise to wear this cape for good

I will do what I dream and do what I should

I will explore the woods with a sense of place

I will follow my heart to the edges of space

My imagination is powerful, anything can be

I am a hero with amazing cape-ability!

The Gift of Imagination

Posted on November 20, 2015 by Amazing Capes

While walking around the park the other day I passed a parent who was pushing their child in a stroller; her perceptive eyes were glued to the screen of a small tablet as they went along the path. I noticed her eyes didn't gravitate from the screen as we passed the tall misty fountain nor did they look curiously upon a family of nearby ducks. Rather the screen held focus as it edged out the time old tradition of people-watching as humans and doggies jogged pass. Now if this had been any adult it probably would have felt happenstance; I realized what felt so arresting to me was how this scene was well on its way to becoming the norm as well.

Original thought will naturally flow freely for a child; but how will their own thoughts emerge as we push them along with the same small screens? For children it's especially important to be given tools that stimulate their cognitive learning abilities; a cape is one such tool. The beauty is in its simplicity; the owner has the power to create the world they imagine while they engage with their surroundings creatively and purposefully. When this happens one enjoys the beauty of living life fully. Much of the excitement that one seeks on the screen is actually being played out. What better gift is there? Let's spread the joy of imagination to those you love this holiday season.

Meet The Classics

Posted on June 17, 2014 by Amazing Capes

New and improved, we like to think that we now offer the most magical line of capes in the universe with our Classic Amazing Capes. And quite frankly, we don't believe there are enough capes in the universe and we'd like to change that.

The newest line of capes will phase out our Original collection that we have flown with for the past year and a half. Which, now is a perfect time to note that if you prefer the velcro closure, stream-lined design & hand-pressed tags, or are especially fond of the Carolina Blue, Magellan or The Rowling color palettes, then scoop up one of The Original capes before they are gone!

We're keeping the same style names and making a few new additions. These features include:

  • adding custom snaps for ease of fastening and to increase the longevity of your cape
  • making every size "roomier" with an added pleat in the center back, a larger neck circumference and more fabric to extend around the body
  • an extra pocket (2)! designed in a new crest shape
  • new needlepoint clench tag, care tag
  • superior craftsmanship from our new sewers that simply seals the value on each Amazing Cape 

To date, we have size small and medium sewn. Things took a bit longer than anticipated for this first batch as the sewers got acquainted with the materials and process; size large and XL are next up on the production schedule. 

Our capes are designed in the crystal vortex of Asheville NC and are sewn in the heart of North Carolina in the industrious city of Asheboro. Made in the USA  & ready for anywhere, we'll always have your back!
