Q: HOW IS A HAT MADE?
A: There are three main processes that go in to making a Yestadt original
Step One: Material selection. The materials we are of the highest quality and are selected based on style and function.
Step Two: Blocking. The shape and size of the hat are determined through the wooden form in which the materials are molded. Through applying heat and steam, the raw material takes on the shape of the block (form) and are left to set and dry.
Step Three: Trimming. After the hat has dried and set, it is then taken off the block for finishing. Through draping, pleating, and stitching the finishing details are in the movement of the trim.
