Giuseppe Borsalino opened his first atelier in Alessandria specializing in the production of felt hats at the age of 23 in 1857.
One of Borsalino's most important developments was the creation of a soft felt hat with front dimples and folding on the crown which combined both elegance and functionality.
This hat style became the destined model that would revolutionize 20th century men’s clothing code.
From Giuseppe Borsalino’s small atelier to today’s manufacturing, the art of hat making continues to be handcrafted. It is the talented craftsmen, involved in every stage of the process, who make the creation of these quality products possible every day.
Behind every detail, a human being is passionate for a job well done.
