“Flying Cloud Hat” makes black felt hats in Lancaster Co, and I am confident they are Amish-made. They are labeled as such inside on the leather band, which, on the 2 I have, also has the owner’s initial punched for identification. I have seen a couple different addresses for Flying Cloud; the one is just north of Intercourse off 772. The straw hat I got at a Lancaster yard sale is not maker marked, and the owner’s initials are inside by magic marker. You can occasionally find Flying Cloud hats offered on ebay for $10-15. Ebay is a great source for cheap Amish clothing for “decorating” purposes but I’d recommend buying from someone in a legitimate Amish community. Most thrift stores in Amish communities also sell Amish clothes at a good price, as do Amish yard sales.
