Probably the most fuss-free hat you will ever own. And probably the most elegant as well.
A best seller for 20 years, from Laulhère, France.
The felted material is made of merino wool, so it is naturally slightly stretchy and comfortably adapts to any head shape. It creates a hat that is hardwearing, crushable (fits into any handbag), and repels wind and water. But the shape with its side bow (a 1930s original from the archives) lends it an air of true elegance.
By one of the oldest and last remaining traditional milliners in France.
Founded in 1840, the Laulhère factory still operates in Oloron St. Marie, the birthplace of the famous French beret. The dense, evenly felted material is made of pure merino wool and is no comparison to cheap imports from the Far East.
