René Hutchisson is the owner and designer at R.Cappelli Hats. As a graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology, René has spent over 30 years in the fashion industry. She specializes in creating custom designs and has an exceptional eye for style and color.  

Having a passion for travel, René fell in love with the idea of a hat that would be soft, super chic and most of all, easily packed for travel.  She wanted a hat with versatility, one that could just as easily be worn to a fine dining restaurant, an outdoor outing or to a beach resort.  She knew it had to be reversible, packable, unique, colorful and fun!  These unique often one-of-a-kind hats just can’t be found anywhere else. 

R.Cappelli hats are available in several different brim sizes to easily complement any face or occasion. Handmade of beautiful fabrics, they can be further customized with embroidery designs and also feature a moldable brim.  And they are reversible, so voilà, two hats in one - the perfect travel accessory!

You may choose a hat from her current inventory at her studio (1211 Pendleton Street, Suite 101 Greenville SC 29611) or work directly with René to create the perfect hat for you, a special someone or club/business.
