Jess Pap, a Toronto woman, is the owner of HotPot Variety. She started crocheting as a hobby during the lockdown, and now it has become a full-blown business. This gave rise to some trendy and one-of-a-kind hats.
She says that she has always loved arts and crafts. Jess Pap is fond of hats and feels like everyone needs a statement piece like it. HotPot Variety produces crochet accessories, primarily bucket hats. The designs and patterns are original and unique.
In November 2020, she decided to post the hats on Instagram and launch HotPot Variety, and from there, the popularity of the small business soared up.
It has become so popular that Holt Renfrew offered to carry the popular crocheted bucket hat in their store in support of independent Canadian designers.
