Located in the quintessential town of Jackson Hole is JW Bennett, a female owned and operated hat making business. JW Bennett is doing more than just selling beautiful hats though, they’re creating wearable works of art that reflect the grit and beauty of Wyoming. Talk about the perfect addition to your wedding day look!
Behind the Scenes of the Hat Making
From the range of shades to iconic shapes and whimsical details, JW Bennett fuses traditional technique with a desire to create a contemporary, exclusively-designed hat. Each hat is crafted by hand in Jackson, WY using traditional western hatting equipment and the highest quality felt. The brand pays tribute to founder Sarah Kjorstad’s cowboy heritage in Wyoming while her craft honors the long-standing and barely changed tradition of hatting. JW Bennett hats reflect the western ideals of connection to the land, integrity of work and pure grit.
The team at JW Bennett starts by finding your perfect fit – sizes range, and are made for both men and women. You’ll choose your hat from an array of our signature shades. Next, they shape the hats to ensure a personalized fit and style. When designing your hat, you can choose from an assortment of accessories including hand-loomed beaded bands, hat jewelry, feathers and other intricate bands. Customize your hat with branded initials, a sentimental date, or western symbolism. Each hat comes finished with JW Bennett’s signature Tetons mountain logo and the option for additional custom embroidery. Leave with an heirloom piece that reflects your personality and the uniqueness of the mountain lifestyle.
