Brand Overview Blog 2020

At American Hat Makers, our mission is to provide our customers with distinctive, unique, and artisan quality hats made by hand in the United States with only the finest materials.

Above and beyond the creation of superior products, we are dedicated to treating our customers and employees with compassion and integrity, and are committed to bettering our community through service, philanthropy, and open-heartedness. Fostering decade long relationships with tanneries has given us access to unlimited quantities of the finest raw materials with which we produce our hats, but the real work starts when the leather is delivered to our factory doors. Starting with deliveries upwards of 26,000 sq. ft. of artisan quality materials such as leather, mesh, and fabrics, we use hydraulic cutting machines, industrial sewing machines, industrial laser engravers, and professional airbrushing stations to produce our masterpieces. Our state-of-the-art production floor is equipped to handle large orders and typically puts out 1000+ hats every work-week. Skilled craftsmen and women bring their individual talents to work with them, and our dedicated team fosters an environment in which your needs are met and exceeded every single time. Speaking of our factory, here is a virtual tour of the premises.


What kind of hats would such a storied company with such a skilled team create, you may ask?

Well, to answer that question I always like to say we make a hat for just about anyone. Whether you’re a brazen hard rocker, biker with an attitude, hardworking cattle rancher, rugged trailblazer, or simply someone with a penchant for fashion, we’ve got the hat for you. We have 6 different brands of hats we offer, each with its own unique energy and personality. No matter what you’re doing or where you’re going, we’ve got a hat that’s been there, done that, and would love to accompany you along the way.

Victorian grace clashes with western villainy in the retro-future world of the Steampunk Hatter by American Hat Makers/ Head’n Home Hats.
