Óptimo Hatworks is located in the mountains of southeastern Arizona in the historic mining town of Old Bisbee. Right in the heart of the historic district, Óptimo Hatworks interior decor is in the Victorian style reminiscent of the 1880's. All the tools and equipment are originals from that period in American history. All styles are done by hand using old-world techniques. We have original designs in both contemporary and period fashions. Along with cleaning and re-blocking, we also restore antique hats.

We have been featured in national and international fashion and travel publications as well as radio, television, and newspaper articles. The museum like layout of the Hatworks allows the public to view hat making in the old-world way. We are an atelier (salon studio) that is open for educational tours for school groups, etc. We have become an iconic destination business for Bisbee and the state of Arizona. 


We are located at 47 Main Street in Bisbee, Arizona. 

Our hours are 10 to 5 every day except New Years Day, Easter,the Fourth of July, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

We recommend making an appointment if possible. Please feel feel to give us a call at 520.432.4544 or email us at optimohatworks@gmail.com.
