One of the reasons Tuscany plays a key role in maintaining the Italian artisan legacy and the hat crafters tradition is a large and manifold production that over the centuries marked a trend of innovation and experimentation, characteristics that describe Tuscan people.


High-skilled craftsmen though make the real difference.

In the early 17th century Tuscan hat crafters began monitoring the progress of their French counterparts in Paris and building the foundations of Tuscan craftsmanship that still confers to their creations a distinctive trait of Italian elegance.


Thanks to the design of woven Straw Hats (such as Chevalier, Boater, and Sailor), and Felt Hats, Tuscany became the undisputed world leader in the production of fine hat manufacture.
