The birth of the hat
The legend surrounding the birth of this headwear goes back into the depths of time: like all of man's inventions across history, it was born of practical necessity.
Over the centuries, the hat has protected man from the cold, the rain and the sun becoming a multi-faceted ornament and an object which, apart from its function, also has an aesthetic role.
Always present in a multitude of shapes and colours in all the world's cultures, it seems to have its origins in the East, where Mediterranean people used to protect their head's with a cone made of blended hair. The practical and magical functions it had in Asia, Greece and Egypt have transformed over the centuries into fashion trends.
