This hat is made from a blend of three different fibers: beaver hair fibers, rabbit hair fibers and cashmere fibers. The three fibers are first blended together while still in their untreated/natural state. The fiber tri-blend is then submerged and soaked in very hot water. Using traditional rhythmic techniques, artisan hat makers work the fibers by hand into a compact, stable felt textile. While still hot, the compacted felt material is shaped around classical wooden forms and finally pressed into the hat's definitive shape.
