BORN ON THE RIVER
Chums has a long and storied history on the water. In 1983 Chums inventor Mike Taggett was tired of watching his customer lose their sunglasses to the bottom of the Colorado River. This is where the idea for the Original Cotton Chums was born. Living in the back of a VW van is a $60 sewing machine Taggett started producing the first round of Chums. Chums manufactures over 15,000 units a day in our Hurricane, Utah facility. Chums employs more than 75 employees between our Hurricane, Salt Lake City and Sun Valley offices.
