THE PISTIL STORY
Pistil is the shared vision of a small group of friends with deep roots in the outdoor industry. We launched Pistil in 2003 to take accessories seriously, bringing sophistication and considered design to this often-overlooked category. Pistil remains owner-operated by the original founders, in Hood River, Oregon.
We make high-quality hats, caps, visors, beanies, headbands, scarves, belts, handwear, and bags for active, fun-filled lives. Lighthearted style focused on function: that’s what makes a Pistil product.
THE PISTIL LANDSCAPE
Pistil is headquartered in the Pacific Northwest. This stunning region is known for having both a laid-back attitude and a deep wellspring of creative energy.
Living and working in Hood River, OR (our forever home), we enjoy close proximity to Oregon’s ruggedly gorgeous mountains and rivers as well as the metropolitan buzz of nearby Portland. This pairing of wild natural beauty and vibrant creativity is what we’re all about.
IT’S ALL IN THE DETAILS
The shape of a button. The silky sheen of a fiber. The just-exactly-right fit of a beanie.
At Pistil we’re known for sweating all the small stuff, because we know it makes the difference between a piece you like and a piece you love.
Our products, and the ways we produce them, are getting better all the time. We work hard to ensure that all aspects of our business provide a clean, safe and sustainable process. We join our industry peers in doing the often challenging work to improve environmental and ethical standards.
Pistil only works with factories that meet industry standards for environmental and labor conditions.
We’re also 100% angora- and fur-free. Our products use no rabbit angora, and all fur pompoms on our hats are faux.
Giving back has always been a priority. We’re proud to support a variety of local, national and international nonprofits devoted to health and social causes.
