what is it made from?
american made beaver & or rabbit felt. durable beyond belief as proven by the cowboys who have been wearing them throughout history! when taken care of, these hats can stand the test of time and can outlive the wearer; making it an heirloom piece. we are currently the sole central coast brand with access to this high quality material :) + leather sweatband, and vintage ribbonry from around the world elevate each hat. embroidery, distressing, beads, and small details add to the layers of available customization.
where are you located?
my workshop is in Cayucos, CA; a sleepy surf town located right off highway 1 on the central coast. appointments can be scheduled there or at LEVO WINERY in Tin City, paso robles. (on occasion we can arrange to meet at your home or at other locations if preferred)
why do you need multiple fittings?
with two appointments i’m able to take measurement of your specific head shape + the crown will be hand shaped directly to your head at final fitting! nobody likes to wear a hat that blows off in the wind, or one that gives you a headache. a perfect fit and personalized hand shaping is part of the custom lux.
how long does it take?
the process from start to finish can take anywhere from 1-3 months. dependent on availability of materials & schedules! the more available you are, the faster it goes!
how much does it cost?
~ 600-700 (+ tax) will get you a hat by sabreena; giving her creative control! this still involves some level of personalization based on questionnaire answers, with customized fit & shape. if you’re looking for a fully custom hat experience you would upgrade to the 800-1000 tier! custom clients are given more options, a little more time dedicated to collaboration, and more extensive sourcing of premium materials. (including 100% beaver felt) if you’re not in the market for a bespoke hat made for YOU, keep a close eye on my instagram. i will post any ready – to – wear hats there, for a typically lower price (~ 400-500) + shipping if applicable. know your size, and be ready to slide into my DMs if you’re interested in something you see! seasonally, straw hats will be available for ~ 300.
i signed up for the s&s waitlist, now what?
i will reach out via email when you’re up to bat! you’ll have some time to consider; ill send you an invoice, and when payment is received we will set dates for appointments! stoked to make you the hat of your dreams! Thank you for your interest <3
