Antica Manifattura Cappelli

Antica Manifattura Cappelli, in Rome, is a place where history and love coexist in harmony. After all, choosing a hat is both a rational and an emotional matter. From pharaohs’ white tiaras to 1900s-style bowlers, hats have dotted human history like a loyal and discrete companion. They sit on kings’ heads as a symbol of their authority, and are held out by beggars as a sign of they humility.

In 2003, Patrizia Fabri took over the business from the Cirri family, who were hat makers in Tuscany. She created a workshop where sense and sensibility come together to revive an ancient craft, producing historical hats, high fashion headgear, and unique custom accessories on demand.

Marvin Gaye said, “Wherever I lay my hat, that’s my home”. And this is where even hats have found their home.
