The Tesi Company, a prestigious Florentine hat manufacturer, was founded in 1850, beginning with a small workshop that specialized in the production of straw hats. The rise of the Tesi company has been as constant as it is fascinating and has survived economic booms, wars, modernity and dramatic changes. Tesi’s production is rich in expertise, steeped in the traditional artisan heritage of the Florence area, and always striving to combine tradition and trends, without forgoing attention to detail and fashion. The company’s famous Panama hats are made of exotic materials in a wealth of fibers, patterns and colors, and every collection is a surprise, with increasingly ambitious and fun shapes and trimmings. Tesi continues to combine history with Italian artisanship to produce exclusive hats that are appreciated worldwide.
