From Italy to America: Authentic Designer Hats For Men & Women

Belfry's commitment to quality means only authentic Italian and American craftsmanship is used. No cheap imitations will ever grace our shelves. This is not a place where you have to settle for less. Our designers work closely with master craftsmen and women who create each beautiful hat using time-honored techniques and materials. They are careful to ensure that every hand-crafted item is completed with meticulous care so that it may last long into the future. 

All of our hats feature expertly crafted details like luxurious fabrics and intricate embroidery. Some are hand dyed by skilled artisans creating vibrant colors and patterns while others are intricately woven by hand to give them a more wearable appearance and approachability. Each designer hat is carefully selected for its outstanding craftsmanship.

Our exclusive line of hats comes from some of the best hatmakers, including Ferruccio Vecchi, Guerra 1855, and Complit. These names are synonymous with luxury and are renowned for producing exceptional products.

If you're looking for an original statement accessory, consider purchasing one of our hats for women.
