The process in which a custom handmade hat is made is based around communication between the maker and the client. The idea when we start the process is to have a good understanding of not only your size, but also your color and style preferences. We will be communicating with you throughout the process to ensure we are achieving your desired look for the hat.
If you see a hat you already like on our website or examples of previous customs that you like we are happy to make something similar, however no two pieces will be exactly the same. Please checkout our Instagram page @steamboathatter for more inspiration.
