Havstad Hat Company is a custom hat company based in Central Oregon that focuses on building lifetime quality, heirloom hats using the finest beaver felts made in the USA.

Each hat is custom fitted to the customer’s head and custom designed to suit the wearer in style and stature. Each hat is made by hand, using vintage hatter’s equipment that dates back to the early 1900s.

We offer gift certificates and each Spring and Fall, Cate Havstad leads Build Your Own Custom Hat Workshops.

Cate Havstad is a traditionally trained hatter with a love for classic western silhouettes, as well as modern innovations in style. Each year Cate creates a special, limited edition collection of naturally dyed hats using plants from the High Desert region in Oregon where she lives. Click here> to learn more about the “Hues of the High Desert” Collection and seasonal availability. In addition to running her hat company, Cate also runs an organic, diversified farm with her partner, Casad Family Farms. Due to the demands of the farm, Cate pauses her hat work from May through September each year, therefore months of hat production are October through April. Contact Cate directly if you have any questions about ordering, workshops or gift certificates.
