WE BLEND ITALIAN HAT MAKING
TRADITIONS WITH CALIFORNIA LIFESTYLE.
At our Topanga Canyon Bodega, all of our hats are custom handcrafted with a focus on combining traditional Venetian techniques with modern materials and a touch of California sunshine.
We strive to provide our clients with a fun and uplifting experience while designing their custom hat.
Our goal is to bring a blend of old world charm and new world optimism to each and every one of our creations.
Ready To Wear
“Creating and designing together with my clients is a huge satisfaction pushing my craft in directions that I would never explore just by myself...”
“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 hat making.
I love making people feel good and look good. I get to do it in the community where I live and the community that I love.
Topanga Canyon is an energetic community populated by artists, creatives and musicians just outside Los Angeles.“
We're proud to show off some of the friends whom
we have come to know and love throughout the years
of creating custom hats for many hundreds of customers.
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.
