How it works
Step 1: Select your base
To select your hat base, the Gem team will work with you to choose your:
Size: Gem Hats uses elastic sweatbands to provide a more comfortable fit. If you aren't sure what size you are, we start the appointment by measuring your head.
Material & Style: Gem Hats works with three main materials (wool, straw & suede) and offers three core styles (western, bolero & modern). Learn more about our materials and styles here!
Color: Gem Hats offers a plethora of colors in every style and material. *Options limited based on availability.
Step 2: Select your bands
Gem Hats uses upcycled textiles and materials for all custom designs. We source our design materials from various sources including other local makers, local retail stores and donations from clients and friends alike!
If you have any fabric or material that you would like to incorporate into your custom hat, please bring it to your design appointment. We've had clients bring sentimental ties, fabric from a family member's wedding attire, and even vintage belts with beautiful designs.
Step 3: Select your flare
Gem Hats offers a variety of customization options, including:
Hand embroidery (florals, mountains, initials, special dates, etc.)
Branding / Burn art
Pendants, gems & charms
Underbrim fabrics (extra $75)
If you have a special piece of flare that you would like to include in your custom hat, please bring it with you or let us know during your design appointment!
