Process and Design

Let’s collaborate

You and I will collaborate throughout the entire process in order to create a hat you truly love.  No two hats of mine will ever be the same as I do every part of the hat making process with my two hands.


The process begins with picking your felt color, brim length, crown shape, gold leaf message on the sweatband, and lastly the design of the hatband.

Make an Appointment

Send inquiry via email to get the ball rolling to set up a custom fitting appointment. If you can’t make it into the shop in person, we can also execute the necessary steps remotely.

… I look forward to creating an

heirloom quality piece specifically for you.

Lets have some fun


i choose to use coypu/nutria over beaver for my hats. nutria is an invasive species in multiple parts of the world, making it a much more sustainable option while the quality still matches that of beaver.


every cutter paul hat has a weight of 230 grams.

Sizing at home? Use seamstress tape to measure the circumference of your head.

For the most part, people wear their hat roughly 1/2 inch or so above the ears but it’s important to place the seamstress tape where YOU want to wear your hat.  

Make sure there are no twists in the tape and it sits nice and smooth all the way around. Once you get the tape where you want it and it is snug (but not tight) take the measurement to the nearest 1/16 of an inch. 

 It’s great to repeat a few times to ensure you get the correct measurement.
