We traveled 118 miles to get to this amazing hat shop. Mr. Wellema is one of the few hatters in America that makes heirloom quality hats by hand. That means no machines and everything is made one stitch and bend at a time.

Whether you are looking for a bowler, fedora, stetson, pork pie or any style Mr. Wellema can make it for you. All hats are made to order and fully custom. That means each hat is one of a kind.
