WE ARE FASCINATED BY THIS COMMITMENT TO QUALITY:
ONE THAT IS TRULY TIMELESS, FULL OF CHARACTER
AND A LOVE OF DETAIL

For centuries, hatmakers were renowned for their expertise and artistry.
Requiring intricate skill, the production of exceptional headwear was honed
and passed down from one generation to the next. Hats were not just
seasonal accessories, but lasting products of great value.

BREATHING NEW LIFE INTO TRADITION

Picture this: a quaint hatmaker’s shop whose origins go back to 1890.
Decked out with bowler hats, trillbies and boaters, it tells the tale
of a long and colourful past.

In 1996, we had the unique opportunity to take over this company.
Sure, time had left its mark — the range of products was as outdated
as the business structure. But nonetheless, it tickled our
entrepreneurial spirit.

WE HAD TO FIND NEW, EFFICIENT SOLUTIONS
FOR EVERY SINGLE STEP. AND THAT IS PRECISELY HOW
WE HANDLE THINGS TO THIS DAY

We immediately set out to revamp the company. We brought in new designers,
new factories, new technologies – and kept our eyes peeled for the latest trends and
innovative methods. We had to find new, efficient solutions for every single step.
And that is precisely how we handle things to this day.
