The Hat Studio
Failsworth brings us unquestionable heritage with an eye on the future. Without losing sight of their traditional values – exceptional quality, fine attention to detail and supreme craftsmanship - they focus on the future, employing the latest advances in fabric technology manufacturing techniques and design innovation. A brand with history, Failsworth was created in 1903 from a humble Manchester premises, turning out a mere 25-dozen hats per week. Growing steadily, by the 1940’s they were making 5,000-dozen hats per week, even finding time to contribute towards the war effort by hand-crafting flying helmets for the RAF and ‘special equipment’ for commando frogmen.
