We had a few glitches moving our domain fully to Shopify this past week and our web site and email were down a few times but we think we are all tuned up and fixed and back on the job! Sorry for any inconvenience. Onward and upward! In person workshop hat tutorials are planned for this summer at our lakeside studio. Stay tuned!


About Us

Proudly Made in Canada. 

Turning and topping heads for over 35 years! Mad Cap Hats feature the original designs of Tori Capes, Certified Milliner (George Brown College Fashion).

Mad Cap Hats is us. We are Tori and Adrian Capes.

Each hat is designed and created by hand, from their lakeside studio in South Frontenac, Ontario just west of Westport, ON. Our hats are made with style and comfort in mind and inspired by the lakes and trees and woodland creatures that surround us everyday!
During our long career we have met many customers at juried artisan events around Canada. A fixture at some of the biggies, including the annual One of a Kind Show in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. In the summer we would frequent smaller festivals in Ontario with our sun hat line. See us on Youtube and learn more about our company with this link here as we are interviewed in Sarnia, Ontario during Artscapes Sarnia in 2019.
Our plan is launch our own Youtube channel in 2022 and begin a journey of teaching and sharing our passion for hats, our tips for sewing and design and many of our patterns. You can subscribe now to the channel and be notified when we launch! Subscribe here!
Thank you for visiting our site and looking at our work. Mad Cap Hats are never mass produced and are designed and handmade to last for years of enjoyment.
