Hat Bands are great for switching up your style of the hats. Simply replace your current Hat band and give your hat a fresh new look!
Nothing changes your look faster than a new hat band! We recommend ordering more than one to exchange, depending on the occasion. One idea is to harmonize the hat band with a shirt or complete suit.
Easter is April 4th.
Easter, also called Resurrection Sunday, is a festival and holiday commemorating the resurrection of Jesus from the dead. Easter eggs are symbols of the empty tomb. One ancient tradition was the staining of Easter eggs with the colour red "in memory of the blood of Christ, shed as at that time of his crucifixion."

The original purpose of a leather hat band was to adjust the hat size to fit the head and cover the stitching where the crown and brim meet. Today, the hat band can be an attractive accessory to change the look of all felt and straw hats. Changing the hat band restyles and personalizes a hat, conforming to one's taste, complexion and hair. An example might be turquoise to accent blue eyes. Most people should have more than one hat, one for dress as well as one for every day. We have bracelets, key rings and necklaces matching some hat bands.
If your hat band has some type of decoration or focal point, such as a bow or buckle,
that focal point is to be worn on the man's left side,
and anything on a woman's hat band should be on the right. Legend has it that this tradition came from the wagons of the old west, where the driver in the family, usually the husband, sat on the left, as in today's american automobile, and his wife on the right. An onlooker from either side would see a decorated hat.
A milliner will often use a hot glue gun to attach decorations to hats. Using a higher-quality craft glue stick will help cut down on the stringiness. It forms a strong and lasting bond. Moisture, humidity, and other environmental conditions won't interfere with setting or durability of the bond. Double-sided tape is widely used by a vast array of industries. It has been replacing rivets and fasteners for years and is used to attach everything from dashboards to mirrors in the auto industry. Tying with fishing line or using small lapel pins have been suggested, but I find those solutions are quite uncomfortable.

Beads are known to be one of the earliest forms of trade between the human race. It is thought that is because of bead trading that humans developed language. Beads are said to have been used and traded for most of our history. The oldest beads found to date were at Ksar Akil in Lebanon. Prior to this find, the beads found in the Blombos Cave were the oldest, at about 72,000 years. Round is the most common shape of beads. The shape of the round beads lay together and is pleasing to the eye. Round beads can be made of glass, stone, ceramic, metal or wood.
Two and three strand Bone Bead Hat Bands
Elk rib bones were the original material for the long tubular hair pipe beads. Most modern bone beads are made from cow or sheep or camel bones and are a byproduct of the food industry and are popular for breastplates and chokers among Plains Indians. Black variations of these beads are made from the animals' horns. A hair pipe is a term for a wide, slim bead more than 1.5 inches long, which were popular with American Indians, particularly from the Great Plains and Northwest Plateau. Bone beads generally come from Indonesia, India or Africa, where they are made by hand in small factories and private homes. These beads are still carved and dyed by hand, making each unique.
Concho or Concha, means shell in the Spanish and Portuguese languages.
Feathers are used to decorate many commercial items, such as earrings and other jewelry, hair ornaments, carnival masks, and fishing flies. The colorful body feathers and tail plumes of chickens, turkeys, pheasants, guineafowl, and related birds are the most common of these commercial "decorative feathers." The feathers of Ring-necked Pheasants rival those of domestic chickens and turkeys in popularity for decorative uses. The species, also known as Common Pheasant, has been widely introduced in North America and elsewhere, and is very commonly raised on game farms. The plumage of the male Ring-necked Pheasant is complex, with each body region exhibiting a different pattern. Ring-necked Pheasants are the only pheasant species for which the feathers of females are commonly used in decorative objects. This is due to their ready availability combined with their attractive patterning.
Vaquero Quality Horsehair Hat Bands. The Vaquero, or Spanish-Mexican cowboy, was considered a highly skilled worker and was the first to use horsehair to braid hat bands.
Horse hair is the long, coarse hair growing on the manes and tails of horses. The longer tail hair is mostly used for belts and necklaces, while the shorter, finer mane hair is used for bracelets and other jewelry. My research indicates the first use of horse hair was by the Spanish in the 8th century as a textile. One historic use was for gloves commonly used for fishing in the medieval age leading up to the 17th century in cold climates. Gloves woven from horse hair fibers were a very popular option in cold climates because horse hair is a very good insulator and also has a natural oil and rigid structure that allows them to be woven tightly and remain waterproof and warm. Hair braiding dates back to the first dynasty of Pharaoh Menes. Ancient Egyptian sources describe Libyan men with long hair, braided and beaded. The art of braiding has mostly survived by western prison inmate hobbyists, making reins, belts, bracelets, earrings, hat bands and barrettes. Horse hair jewelry gives its wearers an earthy, rustic look.
Simply put, leather is awesome. History shows how it represents wealth and status. Care should be taken to match the color of the hat band and any metal accents to that of the belt and boots. We have a large assortment of quality Leather Hat Bands.

A Western Cowboy is an animal herder who tends cattle on ranches in North America, traditionally on horseback. The Cattleman often performs a multitude of other ranch-related tasks. In Australia, most ranchers are in the Outback. The Outback is the vast, remote interior of Australia. The largest industry across the Outback in terms of the area occupied is sheep and cattle grazing.

Headwear is the name given to any element of clothing which is worn on one's head.
The Cowboy Hat, aka Western Hat, is a high-crowned, wide-brimmed hat best known as the defining piece of attire for the North American cowboy. Cowboy Hats were most likely adopted from the Mexican Vaqueros. Modern cowboy hats are made of fur-based felt. Felt is a textile material that is produced by matting, condensing and pressing fibers together. Felt Hats can be made of natural fibers such as wool or animal fur, e.g., Wool Felt or Fur Felt.
Fedora Hat has a soft-brim and indented crown. It is typically creased lengthwise down the crown and "pinched" near the front on both sides.
A straw hat is a brimmed hat that is woven out of straw or straw-like materials from different plants or synthetics. The hat is designed to protect the head from the sun and against heatstroke.
A Panama hat is a traditional brimmed straw hat of Ecuadorian origin. Ecuadorian wide-brim hats are light-colored, lightweight, and breathable, and often worn as Dress Hats with summer-weight suits, such as those made of linen or silk. 
A top hat is a tall, flat, crowned hat for men traditionally associated with formal wear in Western dress codes, meaning white tie, morning dress or frock coat. The top hat is traditionally made of black or gray silk.
