Dana Glaeser is the founder of Slightly Alabama. Prior to founding the brand, Glaeser worked as a marketing executive in New York City, but ultimately decided his passion was in his past—making things with his hands that were inspired by growing up in the Deep South. In founding his brand, Glaeser sought to build a company that was more focused on quality and timelessness than speed and passing trends. Each of Glaeser’s designs is crafted by hand in New York using traditional techniques.
