When Appaman founder Harald Husum was a boy, he befriended a corduroy stuffed animal named Appaman. As Husum brought the plush ape everywhere with him, exploring various parts of his hometown in Norway, Appaman quickly became a tangible representation for whimsical adventures and spirited youth. So, when Husum launched his kidswear brand, it only made sense to name the label after his childhood friend.
Launched out of New York City, Appaman blends European fine tailoring with the attitude found in Brooklyn streetwear. Since its debut in 2003, the brand has become known for its unique Scandinavian perspective on Ameripop imagery. The inspiration Husum finds while walking the streets of Brooklyn is translated into his designs through vibrant colors and edgy, bold patterns.
Appaman’s line of carefully crafted kids outwear, loungewear, and more is constantly evolving with the seasons. Dedicated to inspiring your young ones to embrace the fantastic adventures that life has to offer, Appaman’s line features high-quality garments with a youthful flare.
