2009 Hatty Award Winners


This is the second year that Hat Life has given out Hatty Awards to headwear designers and businesses. We heard from incredibly talented hatters (and retailers) and reached a more international talent pool.

And what a year it was!

There were so many applications for this years’ Hatty Awards that is was hard to pick only 30 winners. As a matter of fact, we feel strongly that everyone who entered the contest is a winner.

The passion that hatters have for their trade is unparalleled by almost any other industry. And that is what made it hard to choose winners. Because, as we all know passion breeds excellence.

We thank everyone who entered the contest this year and hope that we can give you a Hatty Award next year.

We want to thank our judges who donated their time and talent to help pick the 2009 Hatty Award winners.
