This destination is not just a stopover; it's a journey into the artisanal craftsmanship of yesteryear.

The host specializes in crafting bespoke cowboy hats from 100% beaver fur felt, offering a spectacle of skill and vintage allure. Visitors can witness the transformation of raw materials into iconic Western headwear using tools and equipment that are relics of a bygone erafunctioning pieces of history in their own right.
