Zapf Hutfabrik

Recommended Posts

The Werfen Fichtlhaus has been home to a hat making firm since 1520. In 1893 the house was bought by Johann Zapf and still today hunting hats and the famous "Collection Habsburg" are made here. The hand-made hats decorate crowned heads, f.i. the Norwegian royal couple, Gustav XVI of Sweden, and are worn or were worn by Hollywood VIPs like Billy Wilder or Marlene Dietrich. Still in business today.

Hutmacher Zapf "Franz Karl" Collection Habsburg, size 58cm, felt sourced from FEPSA. I purchased (rare step out of the vintage world) this hat at the Zapf factory back in January. It is machine + hand formed with high quality finishing work.
