To make a difference and enhance lifestyles

It all began when I couldn't find the type of hat I was looking for. I wanted something taller and an interior that was mixed with leather and silk.

Hats don't just create a look they protect our health from cold and wind. A well-made hat will stay on your head and a sweatband will cushion your head from wear. The deerskin leather from Scandinavia comes from reindeer that are regulated every year in order to maintain a balance between nature and animal. Same goes for our fur felt which only comes from respectable and sustainable felt makers.

I have heard stories of hats being found from over 100 years ago which still are as vibrant as the first day they were made. This is the change I want to see in the world, for us to make use of items we don't have to throw away but to keep for next generation. A hat also becomes someone's personality that will live on, long after they are gone.

Every material we purchase will be used. Scrap leather will turn into other items. Parts of the felt that we cut off can be preserved for other items as well. Nothing gets thrown away. If there is a mistake made in a hat, it will either be converted to another style or we will find a use for it.
