A STRAW STORY

By | Uncategorized

There’s no denying the popularity and the versatility of the straw hat.  Dating back to the eighteenth century this iconic accessory is an absolute fashion staple.   Today, with the help of manufacturing advances, we can choose from lots of different styles, weaves, colours, stains and embellishments although the main part of the manufacturing process remains the same – every single straw hat produced is still individually woven by hand.

Once the hat bodies, or hoods, have been woven they are ready for BLOCKING.    The BLOCKING process defines the style and size of each hat by using heated aluminium hat blocking machines which produce steam to form the shape of each hat.    Hat blocks can be customised based on specific measurements , shapes and sizes.    Once the hat bodies have been formed customised embellishments can be applied.
