COWBOYS & INDIANS June 2006 Magazine
"Former Chicago-based artist Celeste Sotola says the inspiration for her Montana Dreamwear handmade hat collection started with a trip to Big Sky Country. There she became infatuated with the garb of the local cowboys... Rodeos, old Western sitcoms and movies, and The Cowboy Hat Book by Bill Reynolds also inspired her Great Western Epic hat collection.... Each hat is a work of wearable art painted with beautiful images of Montana, wild horses, and sunsets. The "Hollywood extra" look is incorporated right down to each hat's "bullet holes", "sweat stains", "soil marks", and hand tooled leather hatband. A bonus photograph of Montana comes inside each hat."
