My hats are culturally inspired yet universal, historical yet timeless, handcrafted to wear forever...

I’m a self-taught artisan hatmaker based in Seattle, Washington. I craft my hats from textiles, furs, leathers and found objects that I rescue from thrift stores, your grandmother’s closet, and other clothier’s cutting room floors. Each of my hats is embroidered and/or appliqued by hand, many are completely hand sewn. Each one is a unique piece of wearable art inspired by cities I have visited and my subsequent studies. Travel has become an intrinsic motivation behind many of my designs.

I started making hats in the late 1980's as a hobby, and established my one-woman business in September 2000 under the name of Lao Hats. I rebranded a few years ago as August Phoenix Hats, which is a registered DBA of my original company. August (meaning noble, resplendent) Phoenix (the legendary bird that is reborn from its own fire and ash) reflects the fusion of cultural and historical influences that dominate my work, while highlighting my philosophy of giving new life to previously used materials. The rebrand is, in itself, a rebirth of my original company…

I donate a percentage of every purchase to selected non-profit organizations which are listed on my FAQ page on my website.
