Choosing the right Hat body is only the beginning of the laborious process. First each hat body is handcrafted by expert artisans using different materials: Fur felt, wool felt, and natural straws. Before qualifying as genuine premium product, our hats have to pass a careful inspection made by our skilled hatters. Each hat body is hand dipped in a special lacquer, which makes the hats more durable, water-resistant and easy to clean. Unlike some other manufactures that run their hats trough ovens, our hats are allowed to air-dry. This process takes longer, but it allows the stiffener to cure uniformly and eliminates peeling and cracking. After the completion of the stiffening process, they are ready for the blocking process. We use heat, pressure, and extreme care to give its final size and shape. They are then trimmed to the proper brim width. On all straw and crushable felt hats we sew a special wire to the brim. This brim wire will allow you to customize it to your liking. It is what we call a "U-style it" brim. Then sweatbands are individually fitted. This is necessary because of the different thickness of bodies and other variables. Some other manufacturers cut the sweatband to a particular size and make it fit the hat. Individually fitting each piece of leather to each hat ensures the best fit and quality. Then we trim them with exclusive leather bands, ribbons and bows, giving each one its own distinctive look. Each hat, regardless of price or quality, must pass our rigid quality control inspections. The resulting process ensures a genuine work of art: a masterpiece.
