Our Process

A lot of people ask: "How the hell do you make a hat?"

Good question. There's a slow and rewarding process behind every hat we make to order. What begins as a raw felt body is steamed, stretched, and molded on a traditional wooden block before being trimmed, burnt, stitched, and, finally, shaped.

And now we have a video to show you exactly how it's done. Thanks to Stevie Chris for filming this little piece and to the ever-talented Ben Collier for the sweet tunes.
