Creator, Artist, & Founder


My name is Brit and I am the owner and lead designer at Hoyden Hat Co. 

I fell in love with hats and the custom hat making process years ago during a trip to Wyoming. Since then, I started working with other designers and milliners, learning all I could and studying the art on my own in my free time. I’m also a mom, soon to be wife, and own a small medical supply company. Hoyden really started as a day dream turned hobby. Now- in such a short time- has grown into a small store with the addition of a hat bar! 


I make very unique and handcrafted hats that are inspired by both traditional and contemporary designs. Each hat is meticulously crafted with attention to detail, using high-quality materials sourced from around the world. From classic fedoras to wide-brimmed sun hats, I strive to create pieces that not only elevate your style but also provide functionality and comfort. Whether you're attending a special event, exploring the outdoors, or simply want to add a touch of elegance to your everyday look, my hats are designed to make a statement and reflect your individuality! 


Custom hats are tailored to each individual's unique style and preferences. A custom hat is a collaborative process where I work closely with my clients to bring their vision to life. From selecting the materials and colors to choosing the shape and size, every aspect of the hat is carefully considered and made to their exact specifications. The result is a one-of-a-kind masterpiece that not only fits perfectly but also reflects the wearer's personality and taste.


In addition to custom hats, I have recently introduced a new concept called the "Hoyden Hat Bar". A hat bar is a curated collection of ready-to-wear hats designed to cater to a wide range of styles and occasions. These hats are pre-formed, size adjustable, and available for immediate purchase, offering a convenient option for those seeking a stylish hat without the wait time of a custom order. With endless options of ribbons, pins, bands, feathers, and accessories, each hat at the hat bar is thoughtfully designed by the customer with the same attention to detail and quality as my custom creations, ensuring that every customer can find a hat that suits their needs and expresses their unique fashion sense.


Whether you choose a custom hat or explore the offerings at our hat bar, you can trust that every hat from Hoyden Hat Co. is made with passion, skill, and a commitment to delivering exceptional craftsmanship. Join me on this hat-loving journey, and let's embrace the beauty and versatility of headwear together!
