Thank you for this custom order. It is perfect and just what I asked for. I got a double thread hemp beanie for my husband 11 years ago in Guatemala. He has worn it for years. It was smelly, and faded. I was unable to find a comparable replacement. This hat did the trick! I can now toss the old hat and he will be wearing the new one. Thanks so much!

About

beautifully handmade hats and gloves just for you!

Once upon a time ( well, about 20 years ago), my artist brother, Alastair (nicknamed 'Big Al') asked me and my mom (who shares my love of crocheting and color) to crochet a few hats for him. I took them round to some local funky shops and they ordered!... thus bigalhats was born. The hats continued to sell (even to a shop in Japan) refine and evolve over the years as we listened to customer's feedback and suggestions. Some time later, my sister in law told me about selling on etsy and so here we are!
We don't use patterns but invent our own.
I use quality cotton, cotton/ linen blend, hemp or wool.
We love color and create a hat like a painting.
I make each piece with love, care and attention to detail.
We guarantee that you will look and feel good in our hats and gloves.
I am happy to do custom orders for you.
I work here in a small studio in Santa Monica, California...my mom can no longer crochet but still loves to design with color.
My brother loves to model our hats when he visits from Chicago.
My other brother will occasionally model when he visits from Buenos Aires, Argentina.
(lucky I have cute brothers!)
We hope you enjoy our hats (and other accessories) as much as we love making them!
xxoo Anne

    My mom, Jenny shares my love of crochet although her background was on the English stage, becoming an actress at age 16 and continuing until she met my dad and had 5 children...she naturally combines colors and imagination to create our hats.

    My brother, Jorge has a business background but is so very creative in his own way...he has lots of fun modelling our hats and is cute too!
