Custom Made


“I've always had a passion for hats and clothing and for making things with my hands..”

“ My mom was a seamstress and made all of my childhood clothes by hand.
She always told me to look at clothes from the inside, so you can see and understand the quality of the craftsmanship, and that turned into a lifelong practice, long before I got into hatmaking.
I love making people feel good and look good.
Creating and designing together with my clients is a huge satisfaction and a great way to push my craft in directions that I would never explore just by myself.
I get to do it in the community where I live and the community that I love, Topanga Canyon, California, an energetic community populated by artists, creatives and musicians just outside Los Angeles. “


Over the years of making many hundreds of custom hats for people, meet some of our amazing friends I have had the pleasure to meet, work with & love to show off!

Jimmy Firouz

He's probably one of our most passionate and creatively involved Busto Friend. 6 hats under the belt..and counting. Thank you Jimmy ; )



Every hat has to match a pair of boots. We love designing with Samy and her energetic creativity.

Herman began playing drums at the age of 7 years and has played with the greats most notably for Tower of Power, Kenny Loggins and Tom Jones.,
