Black Western Hat Cowboy Hatband, Braided not Beaded Hat band



A version of this hatband was recently purchased by Dan McMichael of Pine Mountain Valley, GA. He wanted a combination of Black and Gray. Please see comments from customers below under More Info, once they have received their hatband. If you wish to order the standard black braided hatband listed here, just add it to your cart and give me your hat size or measurement around the crown in the note to seller box, before submitting your order.

I designed this hatband in 1992, so I have been braiding them for about 23 years now. This is a very sturdy and substantial hatband.

I make them by braiding a 6 strand mystery braid of 2mm flat Cotton cording (which looks like leather) when completed. I braid them in 5 colors. Choices are Tan, Medium Brown, Dark Brown, Black or Cavalry Gray. This listing is for a Black, second one from the right. (Sorry Photo is not better)

These hatbands are 7/16" wide (Just under 1/2 inch). The average is 23" in length, however I make them shorter or longer for more of a custom fit. For smaller sizes like 6 3/4, I'd have to make one shorter. Larger sizes 7 1/2 - 7 7/8's I need to braid it longer. When you purchase one, please measure around the base of the crown of your hat, or tell me your measurement or what size hat it is, and I'll do the rest.

Just place it around the crown of your hat and tie it on with a square knot. After the knot, trim the ends of the cording to whatever length you want. It will not fray or unravel. Or you can tie a knot at the ends and snip off the excess.

It is a great functional hatband at the right price. If any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Sorry for not sending a return message when band arrived, I got diverted onto another project and did not followup with message of receipt. Band fit just right with enough room to tighten around crown. It fits very securely but I know how I am so I may secure with black thread to make sure I don't lose it ! Color contrast also looks good so you can see band on hat verses being black on black. Material looks more like leather than cotton cord as you had said. Texture even feels like leather.

Thank you so much for taking the extra time and patience in making sure all measurements and details were correct.
I will tell others of your fine work.

Thanks again and I wish you much success !

(Note: Dan decided on a Gray and Black Variegated hatband as opposed to the solid black)
