Who is Jackson West?

Using the highest quality fur felts and finishes, each Jackson West hat is crafted with the utmost care.Inspired by the traditions of the American West, fabrics and techniques from Japan and a passion for the craft.

Our materials of choice are Nutria, Rabbit and Beaver felts, which have the strength and durability to provide years of wear. With a deep focus on sustainability, each hat comes with a branded leather sweatband from the USA and a satin lining with artwork from collaborations with our favorite artists. Our embellishments include mostly vintage materials from the USA, Japan & the rest of the world.
