The Cowboy Hat Masterpiece:

Bullhide hats have gained special recognition in the western market because of their superior finish, innovative style and exclusive trimmings. These qualities make Bullhide Hats unique. Choosing the right Hat body is only the beginning of the laborious process of making a Bullhide Hat. First each hat body is handcrafted by expert artisans using different materials: Fur felt, wool felt, and natural straws. Before qualifying as a Bullhide Hat, their hats have to pass a careful inspection made by our skilled hatters.

Each hat body is hand dipped in a special lacquer, which makes the hats more durable, water-resistant and easy to clean. Unlike some other manufactures that run their hats trough ovens, Cowboy Hat Wagon hats are allowed to air-dry. This process takes longer, but it allows the stiffener to cure uniformly and eliminates peeling and cracking. After the completion of the stiffening process, the hats are ready for the blocking process.

Cowboy Hat Wagon uses heat, pressure, and extreme care to give the hat its final size and shape. Our hats are then trimmed to the proper brim width. On all straw and crushable felt hats they sew a special wire to the brim. This brim wire will allow you to customize the hat to ones liking. It is what they call a “U-style it” brim. Then sweatbands are individually fitted to each hat. This is necessary because of the different thickness of bodies and other variables. Some other manufacturers cut the sweatband to a particular size and make it fit the hat. Individually fitting each piece of leather to each hat ensures the best fit and quality.

The final steps give the hat its unique touch: Cowboy Hat Wagon lines their hats in satin, when appropriate. Then they trim and decorate them with exclusive leather bands, rhinestones, studs, ribbons and bows, giving each hat the distinctive Bullhide look. Each hat, regardless of price or quality, must pass their rigid quality control inspections. The resulting process ensures a genuine work of art: a masterpiece, a Bull hide hat. Not just another straw cowboy hat… but a masterpiece! Cowboy Hat Wagon's straw cowboy hats are only made from the finest natural materials such as Shantung Panama, Genuine Panama, Formosan, Bangora, and Palm Leaf. All of their straw cowboy hats are handcrafted by expert artisans and must pass a strict quality inspection. Each hat is durable, water-resistant, and easy to clean. Plus every hat is allowed to “air-dry” which allows for a stiffer cure and prevents peeling and cracking. So if one is looking for a high quality, durable and inexpensive hat, then this is the place.

Raymond (Chip) Hutchinson established the Cowboy Hat Wagon in 2005 out of the love of hats and to share good quality at a fair price.
