Vaquero Quality Horse hair 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.

What is a Vaquero?

The Vaquero was, in every sense of the phrase, a world-class horseman. The horsemanship of the average American cowboy, no offense, pales in comparison[138].
They were masters of the rope, which they called reata[139].
In the old days of the original Vaqueros, horsehair was a common material that was free for the taking. A well-made, well-balanced, mane hair mecate that's been heavily used with the prickly outer hairs naturally worn away from many long days of riding is one of the nicest ropes a person could use[140].

What is Horse Hair?

Horsehair is the long, coarse hair growing on the manes and tails of horses. Horsehair can be very stiff or very fine and flexible. Mane hair is generally softer and shorter than tail hair. The texture of horsehair can be influenced by the breed and management of the horse, including natural conditions such as diet or climate[53]. Horse hair is the only kind of hair that is harvested without killing the animal. The hair comes from the mane or tail. Think of it as a haircut. The barber doesn’t kill you to lower your ears[54]. Horse hair is strong. Items made from it lasts for years, if not decades!

What is Horse Hair Braiding?

Most horse hair braiders use a square or box braiding technique to create the strands. The strands are about 1/8" square and then can be sewn together side-by-side to make a wide surface for any project. For example, a seven-strand hat band will be 7/8"wide.
I have tried to learn the four-strand braid technique. I found it confusing, very time-intensive and the end result left a lot to be desired! The search for a braiding machine has been futile. My admiration goes to those who are proficient in the art.


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.

What is a Hat Band?

A hat band is a band or ribbon placed about the crown of a hat, just above the brim[127]. 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.

Customer comments:

Dear Joe and Mickie,
I have to write to express my satisfaction with the two hat bands I ordered from you last week. They arrived much quicker than expected and are much better than I could have wished.
Now my only problem is that I may have to buy more hats in order to order more hat bands from you!

Thank you again.

Yours,

Debbie

About Hats

What is a Cowboy?

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[117]. 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.

A cowgirl is a woman who tends free-range cattle, especially in the American West. Also a woman who identifies with cowboy culture, including clothing such as the cowboy hat[118].

Headwear is the name given to any element of clothing which is worn on one's head[119].

The Cowboy Hat--aka Western Hat, --ed 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[120]. Horse Hair Hat Bands are the perfect accessory for a cowboy hat.

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[121]. Horse Hair Hat Bands are the ideal adornment for a fedora hat.

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[122]. Horse Hair Hat Bands are an unequaled accent for a straw hat.

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[123]. Horse Hair Hat Bands are a flawless attachment for a Panama hat.

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[124]. Horse Hair Hat Bands are a supreme complement to a top hat.
