Handmade hats from Austria

Hutmacher Zapf was founded in Werfen, a small village in the Austrian Alps, in 1893 and has been run as a family business ever since. In 15 production steps, hair and wool-felt from Europe is turned into this famous Austrian product. With steam, wooden shapes and a gentle drying process the hats are first brought into shape. Zapf hats can be customized with a great variety of garnishments.

My head size?

To determine your head size, measure the circumference of your head just above top of ears by using a flexible tape measure.


Hint: If you don't have a flexible measuring tape, you can use a non-stretchy string. Lie the string down on a flat surface and measure the length with a flat ruler.
