    WHY WE LOVE THIS

    Christy & Co Ltd has been manufacturing fine hats in England since 1773 amassing years of skills with unparalleled workmanship and individual attention to detail through eight generations of the Christy family. This durable and stylish hat, wider brimmed than the Trilby, is made from 100% merino wool and comes trimmed with a classic band and feather, a piece of millinery magic! With the ribbon bow to the left for gents, we find ladies love to wear them too!

    Handcrafted using age old specialist techniques with more than 190 separate processes, many done by hand, combine to create quality Christys’ hats, with skilled hat makers specialising in one specific operation. Before the hat is made there is significant work simply preparing the fibres, cleaning, treating and ageing them, before creating the felt fabric itself. Felt differs from every other fabric as it is made from a myriad of short single animal fibres which are interlocked and then manipulated with water and steam. The felt is then formed into a large cone shape that undergoes various steam and pressure processes to shrink it. It is then dyed and a stiffener called shellac added.The crown is blocked to the desired shape and the brim set in a process called flanging. The hat is then sanded, polished, and brushed before being trimmed.
