Not a Austrian company but grew out of that tradition. Janyška was started in the 1920s in Valašské Meziříčí – Krásno about 25 km from Nový Jičín. By the way this is the company that produced the early 1940s film on old methods of felt and hat making. Recently received copies of these photos.

Janyška (1930s)

Janyška, size 56cm, probably WWII era. This is the first Janyška I have encountered. It belongs to Paddy on the FL.

Janyška, size 59cm but measures 60cm, WWII era. Very nice felt and finish. I didn't crease this hat because the label would probably not survive. This is the first Janyška I have acquired.

Janyška "The BilCal Hat", size 56cm, probably 1930s. This hat is from the Czech find. Fantastic felt and high quality components. What is interesting is BilCal is Bill & Caldwell who were one of the early 20th Century American importers (there weren't many) of foreign hats (including Borsalino).

Tonak / Janyška & Cie from right after WWII. This is an example of a bulk shipping container that was common in Europe going back to late 19th Century. Janyška & Cie is using the nationalized name Tonak.

Tonak "TRIUMF", measures 59.5cm, probably right after WWII which the model name reflects. This hat was made by Janyška & Cie. and not at the JHS factory in Nový Jičín. There are only small fragments of the paper label remaining. This is definitely a very early Tonak. It has a synthetic sweatband and the felt make up is very unusual. Janyška & Cie. being a Czech owned company was most likely given priority by the post war Czech government. See the Tonak box above that has the Janyška & Cie. Valašské Meziříčí – Krásno address and not the JHS Nový Jičín address. Janyška & Cie. was the only pre WWII hat company that lasted into the early 1960s. I tend to think they were running the show / pulling strings for a good part post WWII.

I was able to confirm this hat was made by Janyška & Cie. by the following photo I came across that has the same Tonak logo but also Janyška.

Janyška, 58cm, Crown Open 5 1/2 inches, Brim 2 inches, NOS condition, probably late 1930s early 1940s. The felt is really nice (light weight) and easily dry creases. Also like that it doesn't have a liner which is less common for this style hat. Overall great form! This one is from my May 2016 Czech find.

Janyška "Praga", 58cm, Crown Open 5 1/2 inches, Brim 2 inches, NOS condition with some mothing, probably late 1930s early 1940s. The felt has more of a Chamois finish in a great blue color (will look better in natural light). Also has an interesting shortened sweatband (also color coordinated) and no liner so wears light. This one is from my May 2016 Czech find. I really like this one!

Janyška, 58cm, Crown Open 6 inches, Brim 2 inches, no Liner, NOS condition, probably late 1930s early to mid 1940s. The felt is pliable and takes a dry crease. This is the only one without brim binding and has a different form than the "Praga" models. It's from my May 2016 Czech find.
