Mad Cap Hats are the original handmade creations of Tori Capes, Certified Milliner. Our hats and other accessories are designed and created in a scenic lakeside studio near Westport, Ontario, Canada.
Our hats can be custom made to fit hard-to-fit heads at no additional cost. Please refer to our Custom Sizes page for instructions on how to determine your head size. As this requires custom grading each piece, custom sizes take extra time especially the beginning of a new season. Leave your measurements in a note at checkout if you require this service. We can also recommend other milliners who can help you get a custom made hat.
Thank you for over 36 years of love and support for our company. During that time we have created 1000s of hats, topping heads from coast to coast to coast!
As we start to think about retirement, we have begun to add our hat Fabric to the website and we are in the process of turning many of our popular designs into digital sewing patterns!! So exciting to think that our hats will carry on with new hands creating.
Join us on YouTube, @Mad Cap Hats Channel to join in the fun of learning how to make hats, wear hats and love hats!

"All I have to say is "WOW". They are beautiful, fit perfectly and look great with my bob hairstyle. They match my Fall & Winter coats to a tee.Thank you for the gift of a mask as well. We can't have enough of those these days. Your workmanship is perfect, and I will enjoy wearing my hats. I know that I will get compliments for both the styles and the colours. My husband gave me the thumbs up."
"I absolutely love my new hat. It fits well, very cozy and warm for Canadian winters. I covers the ears nicely. I will definitely be ordering more in different colours."
"Good morning Tori
I wanted to say thank you for the amazing hats you make. Love both of them! They have been switched around on my head several times and I received them this morning lol. Can not pick a favorite as they are both fantastic in their own way. You create artworks to wear."
"Just received number three and can't wait to try it out. After number one arrived and folks commented on how beautiful it was.... I had to get number two. (And you know how that goes.... as I picked up number three shortly thereafter). Love Love your work!"
"Good morning! I just got the hat and I love it!!!! Truly love it! I have such a hard time finding one to fit and this is just great! Thank you ever so much!"
"I meant to write before now to tell you that I received the hat and just love it! Thank youl Well worth the wait! Your craftsmanship is absolutely beautiful! Hope to see you at the Signature's craft show in December!"
"I LOVE LOVE LOVE MY HAT!!!!!
Can’t wait to take the dog out again so I can wear it!!!!!
Love the grey crackle!!!
Thanks so much."
"I hope the person in LA who found my misplaced favourite hat loves it as much as I did (purchased at One of a Kind a few years ago). I'm so glad I can replace it with another. Thank you for a wonderful product."
"I just received the BEST and most beautiful present EVER! My hat just arrived and I absolutely LOVE IT!!! I will wear it during tomorrow's golf game and if it works for me I may have to order some more. It's so comfortable, beautifully made and quite cute too.
Thank you so much for such a nice piece of headwear. Take care and stay safe and well."
Love it! Love it!
Just received my cap and am so pleased with it. And it is actually made in Canada, in Ontario— can you beat that! Have your business card and will let people know. Good luck with your business, so proud of what you are accomplishing. Thank you.
"My wife's toque arrived today and she loves it! What an incredibly well made hat, with adjustable cuff depth and custom fit that actually works to make it comfortable. The four layers of fleece over the ears really block the wind, unlike the ordinary toques that she is used to. We walk outside with the dog in the countryside winter almost every day, and this hat will be perfect for the temperatures we are experiencing right now (-23C). And of course, this toque is far more attractive than those she is used to. Thank you Tori!
