Penn State Sophomore Hannah Schwalberg Creates Custom Clothing Business

Whether you’re looking for a new football tailgate outfit or just some new school spirit wear, Han Made Clothing can help you out. Han Made, a collegiate apparel clothing business by Penn State student Hannah Schwalberg, has recently taken off. The sophomore marketing majoring who intends to use her studies for a focus in the fashion industry began making her own apparel when other options were just too expensive.

The name of her business, a play on her name, came from wanting to stress to students that her clothing products were “hand made.” Schwalberg creates, designs, and sews each article herself.

Schwalberg originally was only crafting the custom articles of clothing for herself and her friends. After receiving positive feedback, Schwalberg decided two months ago to expand her business to anyone interested. While the price of each shirt varies based on what the customer wants specifically, the custom items usually fall around $30.

Order numbers fluctuate, but typically peak around game weeks. For example, last weekend before Penn State’s home game against Army, Schwalberg received 15 shirt orders.

Each shirt or sweatshirt has its own personal flare and is made using different designs and materials. “The customer’s input is really important to me, so that their shirt or sweatshirt comes out just the way they want it,” Schwalberg said.

Schwalberg is currently advertising her business through word of mouth and her Instagram account, @hanmade_clothing. When customers post pictures wearing her clothing and tag the account it helps the business with exposure and reaching more students.
