I couldn't find any detailed in information on Carl / Karl Weyrich so can't say if the Stiff Felt was sourced or made in house.  The physical location on Google Maps is retail today but there could have been some type of small production.  Carl / Karl Weyrich doesn't come up in any of Austrian Hat Maker News member lists.  He is listed on page 25 of the Austrian Industry Guide (1926).
