About Us

Hand-crafted from the highest quality materials, Trovador Customs hats are unique collaborative works of art design and made in Austin, Texas. Whether an imaginative free spirit, soulful thinker, or rebellious thrill seeker, everyone has a story, wear yours with vigor. It all begins with you.

    Whether we have the opportunity to meet in person in our East Austin design studio, or we connect virtually, our custom hats are a true creative collaboration. After understanding your story and the overarching themes of your life, we'll work to translate these significant moments into wearable art.

    What makes your hat truly unique are the specialty custom additions that help personalize your hat, including custom dyes, stitching, lyrics, or quote engravings. It's always special when folks bring us personal mementos for their custom creations. They always carry their own energy, which brings a whole vibe to your personal accessory.

    One that will journey with you, wherever you go.


    Our hat making process is a meticulous and time-honored craft.

    Each custom hat begins with a one-on-one consultation, where our skilled artisans listen to your story—or awhat we like to call a "download" of your life—and select the finest materials to bring your vision to life.

    Using traditional techniques, we block, shape, and trim your hat by hand, paying close attention to every detail. The result is a one-of-a-kind hat that tells your story and reflects your individuality—a wearable work of art that becomes a cherished companion on your journey through life.


    With access to the best hat materials in the US, we begin our process by helping you choose a color, shape, and style to best fit your personal image, available in traditional and vegan options.

    Based on your color preferences, some styles may take longer based on availability. As each hat is uniquely handcrafted and created in collaboration with you, hats can take anywhere from 4 weeks to much longer. We keep you informed every step of the way.

    Your hat will become an extension of your personal style and story. The creative direction is inspired by overarching themes and significant stories drawn from your life, in short creating wearable art unique only to you.

    When you wear a TROVADOR Customs hat, you're not just donning a simple accessory – you're making a statement about who you are and what you stand for. Your custom hat will become a conversation starter, a cherished memento, and a true representation of your unique journey through life. We invite you to experience the art of storytelling through custom hat making at TROVADOR Customs.
