Classic fedora hat, made by the oldest hat producer from Eastern Europe, inheritor of Austro-Hungarian Empire hat traditions, Czech factory Tonak.
For the first time fedoras appeared in the end of XIX century, became popular in 1920s and, beginning from 1930s, fedora hat is the most popular men's headgear and essential part of men's classic wardrobe (on a par with classic tweed caps).
Hat is made from best type of felt - furfelt. The difference between woolfelt and furfelt is grade of material. Woolfelt is produced from mixed wool fibres and furfelt is made only from rabbit, beaver and goat fur.
Felt has smooth surface, but in a close view you can see fur pile, which has specific direction.
