“The creation of MY BOB Felt hats ask accuracy and expertise.”
First one workshop produces the felt hat body and a second team shapes and decorates it into a hat. The style of the felt hat will define the workshop we work with.
It takes between 9 to 12 days to handcraft felt. The felt is a difficult material to work with. It is a tough fabric made of fibbers that are linked in all directions with each other unlike most of fabrics.
The fine fur felt provides a very soft touch for the more quality headwear which we elaborate in Spain. Since our first collection we work together with the Spanish workshop. They are specialized in classic high-quality headwear and produce for the best brands around the world. From the shaping to the final decoration, all the steps are mainly managed by a team of motivated women that sing traditional songs during their breaks. They are a warm source of energy.
For the more fantasy and fashion felt headwear, often wool felt headwear, we work together with a more fashionable Italian workshop.
The Italians have a fine sense for colors, shape and fantasy. Fashion is in their genes. The LOVE Leopard hat or the dotted FOLCO are two typical creations we create with them.
