Trapper Hat Story
The original “trapper hat” was an actual animal pelt worn on someone’s head. In the 1800s, North American furs were traded to China, bringing luxurious Asian silks to embellish western fashion. As an homage to that time – and western heritage, we’ve given our hats satin linings with traditional Chinese patterns.
Ethically produced by master sewers in NYC’s Garment District, our hats are made with luxe vegan fur on the brims, and high quality dead-stock or specialty wool, or wool-cashmere, for the outer layer. This means we’re keeping textiles out of landfills, and almost all of what we make is an exclusive, limited edition piece. You will receive the edition number for your purchase.
We call our trapper hat the "1876" - for the year that Colorado gained statehood. Wear yours on snowy slopes, across the plains, at shoreline, or in the windy canyons of any city. And know that the west and its heritage are never far away.
