Baja hoodies were an icon of the 70’s hippie colonies on the west coast of America, to be precise mainly California. California is situated right next to the Mexican border which made it particularly easy for the baja hoodie to find it’s way into this explosive community of hippies.
Baja hoodies were well suited to the hippies as they were handmade and organic a lot of the time and the hippies loved this side to the hoodie. It wasn’t long before nearly every hippie in town was wearing a baja hoodie. The baja hoodies bright colours and alternative style struck gold with the hippies and finally found it’s home. It wasn’t long though before the hippie colonies started to die of in the late 70’s and 80’s and with it the era of the baja hoodie too.
