Agustin Garcia: A true artisan!

Agustin “Morro” Garcia is one of the most experienced leather workers in the world. Agustin has been creating masterpieces from tanned hides since he was 13. At age 18, and as the youngest employee there, he was managing 25 people at a leather shoe factory. Since joining American Hat Makers in 2008, Agustin has been beyond valuable as our production supervisor, and often as a talented designer of our fine leather masterpieces.

 Most recently, he has dedicated a lot of time to designing our new line of caps. As a company, we have never explored into designing caps, so it was all a great learning experience. When asked where he got the inspiration for these new styles, Agustin said that he observes a lot of different types of hats out on the street, and combines them to make something new. He said that his favorite hat he has designed so far is the Flames top hat, but he wears a Bottle Rocker most often.

If you own one of our fine hats, chances are that somewhere along the lines Agustin has worked some of his magic into it. We’re so lucky to have such an amazing, talented, and creative individual on our team, and we want to take this opportunity to thank Agustin for all he does!
