Montecarlo and Bullhide Hat Company was founded in 1949. Their cowgirl hats are known for their flavor of the old west, and their stylish designs. Montecarlo and Bullhide’s premium brands include Westcliffe, Ruidoso, and Run a muck. All of the Montecarlo and Bullhide labels must undergo strict quality control inspections for their cowgirl hats.
Bullhide cowgirl hats are made a little differently than other brands. They allow their cowgirl hats to air dry instead of running them through an oven. This is more time consuming, but the benefit is that it allows the stiffener to cure evenly. This helps prevent cracking. In the straw and crush able cowgirl hats, the brims are fitted with a wire. This allows you to customize how you’d like to wear your hat. Also the sweat band on each cowgirl hat is individually fitted, instead of prosecuting the size of the sweatbands. Many cowgirl hats are then finished with a satin lining, and decorated with beautiful jewels, ribbons, and rhinestones.
