Looking to spoil yourself with a luxury hat and feel like a movie star? Borsalino is world-renowned for its luxury hats and its relationship in the arts, cinema, design, and fashion world! The oldest Italian company specializing in the manufacture of luxury hats since 1857, it is mostly recognized for a special design of felt that has become known as a "borsalino". A luxurious experience not to be missed while in Venice! 
The production process of a Borsalino hat reflects the cultural value of the company and has remained the same generation to generation. The hats are still produced in Alessandria where it was first opened as a small workshop now using industrial technology but respecting the original craftsmanship. A handmade Borsalino felt hat requires 57 manual steps and takes about two months to create. The straw hats, on the other hand, are hand twisted and one single hat can take up to six months to make. The Borsalino hat was even mentioned in the novel Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts: "the test of a real Borsalino hat is to roll it into a cylinder, roll it up into a very tight tube, and pass it through a wedding ring. If it emerges from this test without permanent creases, and if it springs back to its original shape, and if it is not damaged in the experience, it is a genuine Borsalino." If you're looking for the highest quality of luxury hats, you've come to the right place! They are classic, elegant, and très chic and you will feel like a movie star.
