Welcome to Nathaniel's

Nathaniel’s Custom Hats is owned and operated by Native American Master Hatter Nate Funmaker. Nate's hats are constructed on vintage equipment using centuries-old, hands-on craftsmanship techniques.

Nate has been handcrafting hats for nearly twenty years and his skills can be readily seen and felt in the finished product. Nate’s hats are renowned and treasured for their high quality furs, durability, and beauty by celebrities (like Josh Bernstein in "Digging For The Truth" and Will Smith in "Wild, Wild, West"), ranchers and just plain “hat folks”.
