Thinking ahead with ear saving buttons
Mad Cap Hats has reinvented our warm toques and caps so you can easily wear a face mask. It looks like we aren't quite out of the proverbial woods yet when it comes to wearing face masks, so this feature returns for a second fall and winter season.
With two strategically placed buttons on the outside, you can easily attached or remove your mask without having to remove your hat!!!! Ears stay warm and comfy, free of any pressure or discomfort from mask elastic. The buttons are available as an option or are included on many of our fall and winter cap/toque designs.
These "ear saver buttons" work with any mask with elastic loops or around the head elastic.

Your Favourite Fabric Face Mask Headquarters!
We've put as much thought into our THREE layer non medical fabric mask designs as we have our hats and are proud of the comfort and fit! With so many fun fabrics and designs we think masks are a fun fashion statement. Our masks are high quality and are made in Canada with tightly woven cotton and cotton/poly for the lining as the CDC and Health Canada recommends for non medical fabric masks. We are proud of the five-star reviews coming in from our clients. We've added a soft flexible aluminum wire all across the top so you can customize the fit around the nose and cheeks making the mask more comfortable, removing stress from your ears and removing glasses fog. Masks can be purchased in the Shop section of the site (Fabric Face Masks).
ps - Iliana is wearing the pleated face mask in the pattern butterflies and writing with the around the head elastic and toggle upgrade.

Every single day customers tell us how much they love their new hats!
Thank you so much for your support and kind words!
"These masks are wonderful! They are light and comfortable to wear, they cover your face perfectly, and they are easy to breathe in. I feel much more secure wearing these masks than I ever did wearing the disposable masks I had been wearing. Tori’s masks are so well made, they wash beautifully and are pretty to look at! I was so happy with my first purchase for myself and my family, that I have placed another order. I couldn’t be happier!"
"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."
