Our Hats

The Ruthless Crafter began with a love of having fun and a desire to make the ordinary extraordinary. 

Each original character hat and their stories have been developed to promote imaginative play. 

More than just a warm accessory or a fashion statement, our whimsical creations are also puppets or costumes where wearers can become the character.

Each character hat is handmade with love in Canada.

We want you to be absolutely happy with your purchase, so before you order, please refer to our Frequently Asked Questions for up-to-date order timelines and other information you need to know.

Ready To Wear

The Ruthless Crafter’s character hats are made with originality, quality materials, and crazy attention to detail.

make your own

We strive to make both the process of making a hat and wearing it as magical as possible. After all, our purpose is to help you to express your playful side!

ignite your imagination

Our characters each have their own personality, so of course they have a story to share!

When you read the story with your little one, they can use the hat as a puppet or prop to act out the story – or it can be a costume to transform your little one into their fave character.
