Zapf hat makers



Craftsmanship from Austria  

Zapf Hat Maker’s is a family business in Werfen, Salzburger Land, established in 1893. In this hat manufactory, hair- and wool felt from Europe is transformed in 15 steps to make genuine Zapf hats. With steam, wooden forms and a gentle drying process, the basic shape of the hat is first created. Then a wide range of fabrics, ribbons and cords are used to add the finishing touches.
