A hat is much more than a practical device for keeping one’s head warm. Hats are great for making a fashion statement, and the choice of hats speaks volumes about your personality. In the past, a hat often spoke quite eloquently of a man’s or lady’s standing in society. Even today, a hat can reveal much about the wearer’s occupation, social status, and cultural heritage. Some hats develop an iconic character all their own, like Indiana Jones’ wide-brimmed fedora or Donald Trump’s red MAGA hat.
American Hat Makers have been proudly handcrafting hats in the USA for over 40 years. They believe in superior craftsmanship and traditional skills, just like the hat makers of a bygone era. Every detail, stitch, design choice and material selection is made with conscious and deliberate thought. As the #1 hat manufacturer in North America, they have won a lot of appreciation and accolades because of their superlative range of hats. These include cowboy hats, Fedoras, Wide Brim, Pork Pies, Hats for Big Heads, Freedom Hats, and the distinctive Voodoo Hatter Collection.
Fashion designers are innovative, creative, and talented professionals. Having an artistic bent and sound knowledge of the latest fashion trends are requirements in the world of hat making. The American Hat Makers are determined to help bright and dedicated students who are keen on pursuing higher studies in fashion design but could benefit from financial assistance. They have instituted a scholarship to appreciate and acknowledge a deserving student by offering $750 as award money. It is reserved for the best applicant who also has a vision for what they can do to improve the world around them.
