About

To make a difference and enhance lifestyles.

It all began when I couldn't find the type of hat I was looking for. I wanted something taller and an interior that was mixed with leather and silk.

Hats don't just create a look they protect our health from cold and wind. A well made hat will stay on your head and a sweatband will cushion your head from wear. The deer skin leather from Scandinavia comes from reindeer that are regulated every year in order to maintain a balance between nature and animal. Same goes for our fur felt which only comes from respectable and sustainable felt makers in Europe.

I have heard stories of hats being found from over 100 years ago which still are as vibrant as the first day they were made. This is the change I want to see in the world, for us to make use of items we don't have to throw away but to keep for next generation. A hat also becomes someones personality that will live on, long after they are gone. Hats made for a legend.

Every material I purchase will be used. Scrap leather will turn into other items. Parts of the felt that are cut off can be preserved for other items as well. Nothing gets thrown away. If there is a mistake made in a hat, it will either be converted to another style or I will find a use for it.

Same goes for the shipping boxes. Everything made locally with no, or limited, use of plastic.

Now, have a seat, and tell me your story.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalised orders

Happy to customize the hats before your order. Send us a message either before or after your order and we can discuss your ultimate look for the hat.

Customization is done at no extra cost if its similar to the advertised item. Customization that requires extra work would need additional charge.

Sizing details

Not sure about your ideal hat size, send us a message and we will walk you through the process.

Us a soft ruler, tape measurement, and measure the largest size of your skull. One fingers width above your ear. Our sizes are based on this measurement and add 0.5 cm to get your ideal size. If you are in between, let us know and we can advise.

Alternatively, make a measurement of your head and send us the size in either Inches or CM and we will help you make a custom fitted hat.

How are Hufvud hats made?

Everything is made in our studio space in Lund, Sweden. Crafted by hand, shaping each part of the felt to get a smooth surface and a strong hat body.

Stitching is done by hand, no sewing machine is used during the process. By doing this by hand we can ensure that foundation of the hat is done properly to produce a quality hat.

Each individual hat needs 3 - 4 days for production depending on the detailed work needed. The felt body is prepared by steaming and drying which takes time and is an important part of the process to get it right.

We make our own custom sweatband from Scandinavian Deer skin which also is stitched by hand. Custom and cushioned fit.

Cancel an order?

Please cancel within 12 hours of purchase. Once we start making a hat there is no turning back for the material. In order not to waste materials we ask you to communicate with us as soon as possible.

Each order is customized to your size and the custom sweatband is cut to fit your hat exactly. We also would like to start making your hat as soon as possible.

Care instructions

We use rabbit fur and beaver fur in our hats which is a very durable and protective material. The material will repel water to some extent but it will also soak in after a while.

Should you find yourself in rain with the hat it's important to let it dry at home by itself away from direct sunlight. Once you receive the hat its recommended to make use of a Scotchgard Water repellant and spray a thin layer on the hat.

Only use a soft clothing brush to brush off dirt from your hat. Anything stronger will start to scrape off the fur and damage the felt.

It's recommended to handle the hat by the brim as excessive pinching at the crown, in long-term, will damage the felt.

Repair and Reblock

Any damage to the felt is not repairable. Should you need any repair on a hat purchase from us please contact us for further instructions.

If you have an older hat and are in the need of a touch up or repair we are more than happy to assist you with sweatband change, ribbon change and reblocking of the felt.
