Ordering a Custom Hat
~~Sorry, but Custom Hats are not available at this time ~~
Sometimes this happens ...
See a Hat that You Love but it isn't Your Size? Or Love a Hat but want it in a Different Color? Or Love a Hat that has already been adopted (sold)?
Custom Orders are Welcomed
Previous custom orders include hats that have been inspired by a customer's passion for a particular painting - Gustav Klimt's 'The Kiss'. Another customer wanted a sculptural hat inspired by the sea.
Please note that while I can make a similar looking hat, I cannot make a 'carbon copy.' This is due to the nature of feltmaking. Each piece that I create will come out slightly different.
How to Request
Please use the Connect Form to contact me about your Custom Hat.
What I Need
Every head has its own unique size and shape which can be measured with a flexible tape measure, or even a piece of string.
Take the tape measure and encircle your head, just above the top of ears. Make sure that the tape measure goes over that small bump at the back of your head. Please don't pull it tightly. Leave a little 'ease' so that one finger can fit under the tape. An ear to ear measure can be helpful too.
If you wear glasses or want the hat to cover your ears, make sure that the tape measure encompasses these elements.
Measure 3 times: it is surprising how it can vary!
See the illustrated FAQ How to Figure your Hat Size for more details.
Color and Style
Next, share with me what colors, shapes, and styles that you are interested in.
Let me know where you plan to wear your hat and whether there is a date that you need it by.
All Custom Hats require a non-refundable deposit so that I can purchase needed materials. I will email you an invoice via Shopify for the deposit.
After completing your hat I will email you a link to your finished hat. After you pay the remaining balance on this website, I will mail your hat to you.
A deposit is 20% of the final amount.
For example, if your hat cost $150, then your deposit would be $30, with $120 due when the hat is finished. Within the United States, the price of shipping is included.
How Long will it Take?
Custom Orders take one to two weeks to create, depending upon other orders that I already have.
Custom Orders are not returnable. ~If~ the hat is not quite right, we can work together to make it fit better.
Looking forward to Hearing from You!
