about wellema hats
Wellema Hats are known around the world for their integrity, durability, and high quality craftsmanship. Each hat is handmade at our store in north Los Angeles, in the small town of Altadena, CA.
Wellema hats are dedicated to old-world craftsmanship & standards. Using century old techniques, sourcing the finest fur felt, softest sheepskin sweatbands, smoothest rayon liners and trimmings of the highest quality, we produce the finest hat made by two hands. Bespoke made; each hat is tailored, not only to the design of each client, but to the proper fit of comfort & proportion to each head. Our hats are formed on wood blocks that are over 100 years old, giving them their proper shape and style. Being hand sewn throughout & with devout attention to detail, Wellema hats take no shortcuts.
With every brim cut and stitch sewn; we still appoint techniques hatters have used for generations. While we adapt to the trends of the world and the liking of each of our clients, our classic roots will always give us a firm foundation in an ever changing world.
