About the Headwear
Making headwear for the biker community and families at arts & craft shows and festivals makes the sewn headwear collection unique from Rawls-Riley Creations. All our designs deliver protection and originate right here in Kansas City. Nothing is made in huge quantities and many retain their distinctive appeal simply because they are one of a kind. Requests to make something special just for you are always welcomed. Many get their first at a show where they can try it and talk directly to the maker Becky Rawls-Riley. Others find theirs right here at creativeheadwear.com.
From its origins in making do rags for bikers, Rawls-Riley Creations expanded its headwear for the community. Do rags in sizes cover youth size to really big heads. It created hair bag® do rags in sizes for long hair riders. Headbands with staying power fit come in sizes making them very popular. When do rag ties and tail feel like too much, go with a basic skull cap or a welding cap to get a bill for style or a bit more coverage along the neckline. Either way, these caps come in sizes and are definitely preferred by those who can’t seem to tie tight enough to keep anything on their head. The gals really appreciate the materials available in head wraps.
Arts & Crafts Shows and Festivals Headwear
Joining the arts and crafts vendor world required its handcrafted headwear line grow to include new styles. Custom floppy hats with mix-‘n’-match bands are a hit for gals who prefer to feel the heat in style. Cloth caps provide just the right coverage for guys who got off without their hat that morning and pushed maker Becky Rawls-Riley to begin making some good ol’ dad favorites. With show season extending even into the first of November she designed warm fleece headwear in sizes for newborns through grandpa and grandmas.

Nut Roaster Likes It
Hot summer show neighbor needed a bit of relief while she was making her delicious smelling German roasted nuts. She has gotten caps for family members and herself over the years. The year she got her visor she gave it a work out by wearing it during the entire show. I was pleased to get her, “I like it!”

COVID-19 Ushers in Virtual Festivals
No doubt the COVID-19 outbreak dealt many a personal and emotional blow. We all feel for each other and hope for the relief of the better times to come.
It sent the shows customers have relied on over the years for Rawls-Riley Creations headwear into a dilemma, too. It is the shows where they enjoy getting to see all the new stuff. Where they would return to replace the headwear that they’d worn and worn and gotta make a quick stop in to pick up another one. Discovery at the shows turned lookers into buyers and the headwear brought them back for more.
Ah! Going with YouTube videos for virtual festivals makes delivering the shows to our fans and newbies possible. Do check the virtual festivals out as you see them on this web site. There will be more videos coming. Let me know what you think via email sales@Rawls-RileyCreations.com.

Motorcycling for Me
After a few years on the back of my husband’s motorcycle, in 2000 I decided to take a class and learn to ride on my own. I started on a Honda Rebel, graduated to a fun Buell Blast, and currently have a Harley-Davidson Sportster.
Bikers Gotta Have Headgear that Works
The bikers I know want to have something they can use. When I began to try selling the do rags I made, they were supportive enough to tell me what they did not like so I could deliver headwear that really works for them. They made it possible for me to become a self-taught headwear maker.
Now, for my new designs that might work for them, I take it to shows for their input. If you want to know the honest truth, ask a biker.
The biker community continues to be supportive of my work. I appreciate hearing their stories about how my headwear makes their ride better. I am grateful for all their help along my headwear making journey.
Comfortable Do Rags
Our do rags have a traditional look. The do rag uniqueness in these come in the band and sizes. The band has comfortable terry and the back elastic gives it a hat-like fit. Available in four sizes, they deliver real comfort. Press here for the do rags.
He came to the Decatur Celebration the first time and could not resist getting the fluorescent yellow do rag. He said he had a shirt that would match. Low and behold, the next day he came back wearing the do rag and that shirt. Scott was happy to get his picture with me. It’s been great to have him stop by at the tent over the years.
Do Rags Lead to Custom Work
Once you have your own bike, it doesn’t take long to dive into all those add-ons that could make it just a bit more like you really want. Make it faster, more chrome, louder pipes, saddlebags for trips, a windshield bag to hold the spare do rag for those times you get caught in the rain.
Customization does not stop with the bike. It extends to what you wear when you ride. Dew rags top the list to complete the look. It was custom requests for do rags that began to roll in as bikers learned I actually make the do rags and they were really talking directly with the maker at shows. A special doo rag would work to meet their need and match their bike. Do reach out and let me create the look that will be outstanding on you. You deserve it.

Only Way To Deal with Those Issues is to Cut It Off. NOT so Fast!
Tell me you’ve heard that lots and I know exactly what you are dealing with. I like long hair. Always have. It’s me. I will deal with it rather than cut it off. With the hair bag® do rag I smile and bag it.
It was all those sharp bobby pins that drove the gal to ask for help when she learned I actually made the do rags I had at the show. She pulled off the bandana to show them to me. Oh, my! She had lots. With her super fine cobweb-like textured hair she had a bit more of an issue to deal with than I have with mine. She had an idea of what she thought might work, but I already quickly thought of how I could make something using the do rag as the base. I created the hair bag® do rag for her.
The next time I saw her, her long hair was not under a bandana. It was flowing behind her. She was pleased to let me know the hair bag® worked. Press here for everything hair bag® do rag.
Bag It in a Hair Bag® Do Rag
The hair bag® do rag is a do rag with a pocket on the back for longer hair. It is used by those with long hair to keep it clean, contained, and out of the way. Think healthcare, food service, meat packing, boating, bicycling, motorcycling, hiking, running, jogging, mechanics, welding, painting, wood working, and even scuba diving. These work for the super fine hair, straight hair, curly hair, and come is sizes. Your hair just needs to be long enough to go into the pocket. We will have one to work for you or can make one that will give you the look you want.
Definitely don’t cut it. Bag it. Press here for the hair bag® do rags.
