Celebrating 160 years of Manufacture

Handmade in Italy since 1857

Over the years, the Borsalino production has remained faithful to a process that, passed down from generation to generation, represents the cultural value of the company.

The Felt

A process of 52 steps performed by hand and seven weeks’ work are needed to make every hat that comes out of the Alessandria factory.

The Straw

The straw is woven in the heart of the Ecuadorean mountains, at 2,550 metres above sea level, in the city of Cuenca. Up to eight months may be required to weave just one of these hats.

Made To Measure Experience

A trunk that holds the secrets of the craftsmen who made hat-making history.
