We will welcome our guests in Fumile's exclusive boutique where we will begin with wine and local cheeses and talking about the history of hats, how they're made and how Fumile came into being. You will be able to try on some pre-made hand made hats and discuss with our local hat makers about marrying your physiology (head and face) to the perfect hat style, which is Fumile's speciality. ''There is a hat for everyone, you just need to find the perfect hat maker'' Next, we will go into the workshop behind the store and have a full experience about every step in making a custom hat. From steaming the felt to moulding it and finally personalizing all the finishing details you will be able to comprehend how much work and love goes into making each hat. There will be an option, after the demonstration, to order and personalize a custom hat for an extra fee and get it shipped directly to your home.
