    How we do the hats

    Members asked me about the process we do on our hats.
    I thought it would be interesting to post the full response in here.


    To clarify some doubts, I'll write some characteristics of our work: (much of this info is already stated on our website)
    * We have no company. We do this as a hobby. By fans, for the fans. We do this for pleasure, no stress.
    * Felt is 100% hare.

    We buy (localy) the felt body and the sweatband (soft authentic leather, in black). Ribbon (rayon high quality grossgrain) and lining (fine silk) from Europe.

    This is the process:
    - block the felt (on our own blocks). This stage involves water and lots of steam.
    - ironing the felt
    - dimensional cut
    - pouncing the felt with 5 different sand papers measurements
    - first application of Water Repellant
    - attaching the sweatband (with sewing machine)
    - attaching ribbon and bow
    - attaching inner lining (glued)
    - bashing
    - second application of Water Repellant

    Regards.-

    I don't condone the STFU statement but my sentiment is "pictures, pictures, pictures!".

    Would love to see a thread on the steps you take making one of your hats.

    Ok, I'll try to put together some kind of tutorial.
    I don't have much time this days, it's high season on my business (tourism).

    Regards.-
