QUALITY FUR FELT
Our hats are made out of the highest quality rabbit fur felt, produced by some of the worlds leading hat felt manufacturers. Fur felt is a type of felt that consists of the fur fibre that is difficult to separate, which forms a non-woven textile surface repellent to water. Due to its tight fibres it maintains form and can be used for decades.
LEATHER FROM SPAIN
We found an artisan on Instagram who runs a small business outside Valencia, Spain. His leather bands uses materials from local farms, and for the logo print he collaborates with artisans in the same village.
All our hat blocks are handmade in Spain with local wood and made to perfection. To make a hat you also need several other tools, such as a rounding jack (to cut the brim), foot tolliker (to get a sharp line between brim and crown), pusher downer (used to push down the block string before drying) and a puller downer (to press the fur felt over the crown before putting it to dry).
