About

Head Regal was created in 2012 with the pure intention of making beautifully unique, life-friendly products that make you feel good on the inside. Inspiration for our blankets arise from things such as safety, comfort, wellness, being in the moment, restfulness, peace, calm, truth, vulnerability, playfulness, individuality, love, nature, and home. No matter the design or size you choose, each blanket is intended to be a “personal blankie” for all ages and meant to provide snuggly comfort for you, wherever you are. The fact that they look great in the home, is secondary, but also intended.

Community, friendship, and family (whatever form that comes in) is literally threaded into everything about Head Regal.  In the early days of describing Head Regal style we came up with the description of hippie-bohemian-beach-cowgirl-punk and that definitely still rings true, however connectivity is really and truly what Head Regal style is all about, and that applies to men, women and children alike. Our signature Vintage Kantha Fuzz Blankets created from hand-stitched quilts from the 70’s, have inspired a multi-line brand of blankets and set a standard where every blanket that we make is worthy of entering your life and of sharing in your story.  Whether created from vintage quilts, hand dyed from raw material, or exclusively created with our own fabrics – what you’re wrapping around you (always backed in fuzzy wonderfulness btw) is special and created with heaps of love.

This website has been thoughtfully created to provide you with the latest Head Regal products, as well as a newly added discounted section, called Our Bazaar, where you can find our exclusive bags, blankets, denim napkins, fish tails and items one would find at our local LA private sales.  Please be sure to join our newsletter to stay up to date on newly released creations and flash sales in the bazaar.  Feel free to contact us anytime if you can’t find what you are looking for.

Our Head Regal Family is proud to share our newest release of hand-woven, recycled cotton, Mexican Surf Blankets and our new Denim Chambray vintage inspired indigos created by hand in the wash houses of Compton, California.

Amber Laforet
Owner | Designer

Laforet is the mother of two (Noah and Eliana) and is native to Los Angeles. Being a mom has definitely played a huge role in defining what Head Regal stands for. She is grateful for the journey her business has taken her on and is most proud to be able to share it with her children. “My kids have been raised amidst vintage colors of India and wash houses of LA. They’ve been able to see how things are made and watch their mom create,” she says.

Coming from a creative background, she received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Photojournalism from Western Kentucky University and worked as a Picture Editor at a large photo agency in New York. She strongly feels that visual storytelling is infused into the Head Regal culture. Most imagery that comes her way of people wrapped in a HR blanket, is capturing a real life moment whether celebrating a newborn, snuggling your loved ones, or wrapping oneself up in self love, or healing – it all is just adding to this beautiful multifaceted tapestry of life and spreading a message of positivity. “I think that the main thing is to create with meaning and with love, just like anything.” She is so grateful when people share their Head Regal stories with her. “My favorite is when family members fight over their blankies! We have the same problem in our house.”

She happily raises her two children with sunshine, sand and sweat in their hair in Manhattan Beach, California.
