We added a photo showing the bead looming sample board we display at powwows. Because so many designs are copied from other countries and mass produced. If you want different colors to a design you like for your Regalia. Call us and we CAN DO IT...They who sell copies cannot.

Attaching a Hat Band
There are a few ways to do this?
If you have a standard hatband with ties.
Then place the hatband centered to front and snug it with the ties.
After tying it off you can trim the ties with a scissors. Leave enough to re-tie if needed. This method is used so hatbands can be changed.
You can also remove the ties and then tack stitch through the leather end caps: Snug the band and tack stitch the other end with the leather cap.
This method has all the ties removed, and yet the hatband remains changeable when desired.
On the expensive hats like stetsons or the expensive felt hats:
A custom crafted to fit hatband for permanent attachment.
We need the exact measurement around the hat: Then we loom the design as you desire in #11 or #15 seed beads.
We make it longer than actually needed: We then seal the end beads deep enough so they can be trimmed when added to the hat.
NO END CAPS or TIES
In this method: You center the band and then tack stitch one end to the rear of the hat. Then you snug the band and trim off with a scissors the extra length and then tack that snugged to the other end. This leaves NO SEAM to be seen and a continuous band totally around the hat without any ties. This is how we do them for the Reservation Police. We also then tack stitch as needed the band on the hat to keep it strongly in place under all conditions. This is a permanent hatband and not easy to change.
Hatbands are very personal! As is the hat you purchase.
You can attach a custom band or mail the hat and we will do it for you. Use one of our designs or mail us your family or Tribe design.
Some like a 1/4 inch statement band. (small)
Others choose 1 inch and a few have gone to 2 inches.
Width is also a very personal choice.
Decide by placing a ruler and decide the width of the band design.
Length is always decided by:
HOW YOU WANT THE BAND ATTACHED.
