San Diego Hat

San Diego Hat brings together design, material, and craftsmanship into three good value collections for men, women, and children.  Constantly updated hats include a signature ribbon line, fedoras, floppies, and knits as well as the sun protection assortment.  Accessories include scarves, sunglasses, bags, and tunics.

All items are easy to wear everyday staples.  The brand’s global aesthetic and sense of humour often shines through.  San Diego Hat sells globally in more than 3,000 specialty boutiques as well as at major department stores.

Brand Profile

San Diego Hat continues to grow, with two new lines complementing the original core collection.  Four Buttons is a value-priced line of on-trend styles, while Bay Sky offers accessories that work well with headwear.  San Diego Hat has also continued to expand its production base, opening a 50,000 square foot facility in Carlsbad, California.

The founders of San Diego Hat were inspired by a 1993 trip to Bali, Indonesia – another beach paradise.  The Original Cotton Crochet Hat blended a deep passion for world travel and an enduring love for hats.  Although San Diego Hat has long outgrown its first home in a San Diego garage, the company remains true to the enthusiasms that prompted its birth.
