Just about any style of hat can be created to your liking, from a classic western shape to a chic fedora or a fusion of several styles that you like. Inspiration can be pulled from hats Cate has previously made (see her Instagram gallery) or you may send inspiration photos found in movies, magazines or elsewhere to firstname.lastname@example.org.
To custom order a Havstad hat, please be sure you are on the Fall 2019 Custom Order Waitlist.
Emails will be sent to the mailing list first when an order intake period opens. There will be four limited intake periods, in August, September, October and November.
Havstad Hat Company is now taking custom commissions for Fall and Winter Delivery. Head to the shop page to secure your spot in the production.
Cate Havstad builds custom hats from October through April of each year. From May through September she works full time at her farm, Casad Family Farms.
Havstad hats are made using lifetime quality beaver fur felts, ranging in price from $700- $1000 based on felt quality (50x or 100x), weight (4 oz dress weight and 8 oz western weight available) and adornments. Each hat is custom fitted to your exact head size and shape and is shipped with a wooden head mold inside the hat to keep the custom fit. All Havstad hats can be reworked, cleaned and reshaped time and time again for the rest of your life. These are truly lifetime investments that will be passed down from generation to generation as an heirloom.
