HOW TO MAKE A HAT (31/12/2017)

Sono stato accolto nella bottega con puntualità e gentilezza. Ho potuto visitare tutti gli spazi, mi è stata raccontata la storia dell'artigianato dei cappelli in generale, ho assistito ad alcune fasi di lavorazione dei manufatti e ho potuto compiere in prima persona qualche semplice passaggio: una visita affascinante e completa. Ringrazio Italian Stories per l'ottima organizzazione di questo servizio.

THE STORY

The story of this workshop begins in Florence in 1972 when our parents, Rolando and Liana, decided to take over the firm where our father had worked for more than twenty-five years: “Il fiore artigiano".
Now, our family produces millinery hats and many other accessories for brides and grooms, ceremony and elegant clothing, film and theater, all handmade by our milliners and manufactured in Florence. Our creations are offered in a wide sample. We produce with our brand, also on design and fabric of the client but also for private labels.
Our wish is to meet all needs of those in search of essentials harmony of the dress, which is why our accessories are made with expert craftsmanship in order to offer a quality product to those who recognize and appreciate it.

HOW TO MAKE A HAT

Renato, milliner

Not many people know how to make a hat, which are the steps to get to the final product, creating it by hand, with the help of a few tools, an object that will be appreciated by those who recognize the true craftsmanship. We will show you the whole process, from the wooden shape to the finished hat. The experience will last about one hour.

WORKSHOP

YOUR CUSTOM-MADE HAT

Renato, milliner

The workshop includes a short presentation of the work of the milliner and hatmaker, in which the different spaces of the atelier are shown, and the different activities that are carried out there. Then we move on to the making phase, which is organized as follows: 1 hour of preparing the hat shape (possible materials: sisal,straw or felt) from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m.; lunch break circa 2 hours, and then from 2 to 5 p.m. we will work to finish and decorate the hat made previously. This particular type of craftsmanship involves fixing the hat shape in a kind of oven. This procedure requires a break time between the first stage of work and the next one, during which the work will be refined and finished.
