Since 1994, Nate Funmaker has been building custom hats the old-fashioned way. Combining old-world techniques and modern style, Nate creates a hat that not only fits your head but also fits your personality and lifestyle. Made of fine fur felt, a Nathaniel’s Custom Hat is a wearable and functional piece of art.
Nate can bring your custom hat design to life. Explore our Colors & Materials, or come into the shop for a custom hat fitting.
The “Bowler” was once the most popular hat in the American West worn by both outlaws and lawmen.
One of the decisions when designing your custom hat is the color. The colors below are the best we can show you in digital format. Please contact Nate for an actual swatch of your selected material.
We use only the highest quality fur felt made from 100% Beaver, or a 50/50 Rabbit/Beaver Blend. The fur felt type you choose will determine your colors available from the list below. You can also customize any hat with upgrades or add-ons such as bound edge, pencil curl, custom braids, sash, etc.
