Equal parts comfort and style, sun hats for women are a warm weather classic. Offering outstanding sun and rain protection, our collection is designed for all your outdoor adventures.

Set sail on a tropical vacation with a straw boater, keep cool during a day in the garden with a camo mesh hat, or shield your eyes from the sun’s rays at the beach in a wide brim hat floppy sun hat from American Hat Makers. Our collection of handmade straw hats, felt hats, and mesh hats have a silhouette to fit every style. 

Our collection of sun hats for women features patterned hat bands, two-tone hat brim trim, beaded hat bands, contrasting stitching, and multiple different brim shapes that have all been constructed by hand in our atelier or partner warehouses. Whether you’re drawn to our floppy sun hats that add a dose of glam to any holiday look or need a workhorse of a hat to take on your upcoming backpacking trip, you can be sure you’re getting a piece that’s been handcrafted with uncompromising standards for long-lasting durability. 

To keep your sun hat as beautiful as the day you bought it, simply wipe it down with a damp, white cloth - or brush it with a soft bristle brush. Follow the woven pattern of the straw or the weft of the felt to maintain its integrity. If your hat is made of fabric, follow our specific care instructions for the best results - some of our sun hats for women are hand-washable and water-friendly!

Quality Materials, Handmade Construction

The best sun hats for women are breezy, lightweight, water-resistant, and offer ample sun protection. To achieve this, we’ve sourced only the finest materials to make hats that are true investment pieces.

The strong straw construction of many of our wide brim sun hats has been carefully crafted from a variety of 100% natural plant fibers, stalks, and leaves. They are hand-selected, sorted, cleaned, and bundled to ensure the highest level of quality. We plan out the exact patterns, colors, crown shapes, and brim styles prior to beginning. They are then carefully woven into a tight pattern to create what we believe are the absolute best sun hats for women on the market. They are rigid - holding their stunning shape for longer - but also incredibly lightweight and breathable. 


Ultra-breathable, nylon mesh and hemp fabric are some of our other lightweight options. We’ve designed this line of mesh hats for women to block 80% of the sun’s rays, to be able to withstand being packed into your weekender bag, and to be easily hand-washable for a hat that truly goes wherever you do. It’s a trifecta of features that make this the perfect material for the on-the-go woman who loves to soak up the summer sun, without needing to worry about anything other than having a great time. The packable fabric sun hats in our collection feature relaxed, wide brim styles with a rounded crown and no crease, coming in a variety of colors and fun prints, such as rose petal, camo, all-over pink, and classic beige.

We finish many of our sun hats with a hand-sewn sweat band, ventilation points throughout the crown, and fashionable details - like contrasting stitching or a beautiful leather hat band. Some of our women’s sun hats also come with a chinstrap to make sure not even a strong gust of wind will stop you from enjoying your day. 

Here at American Hat Makers, we specialize in designing women’s fashion hats that offer stylish protection and make you feel confident wherever you wear them. Whether you choose a wide brim sun hat, straw fedora hat, packable mesh hat, or another sun hat for women, your piece can effortlessly take you from the beach to backcountry mountain trails to wine tastings and, of course, beach getaways.
