Borsalino is the oldest Italian manufacturer specializing in the production of luxury hats: a pioneer of Made in Italy, it is known worldwide for extraordinary quality, unmistakable style and timeless elegance.
The Borsalino hats have been manufactured since 1857 in Alessandria, through a production process that combines an industrial perspective and artisanal spirit: for the felt models, more than 50 manual steps are required, and 7 weeks of processing; for the creation of straw models, manually woven in Ecuador, every single hat can take up to 6 months.
Since 2018 Borsalino is owned by Haeres Equita, a private equity company of Italian and international investors, with the objective to develop the brand internationally and strengthen its leading role in the world of artisanal luxury. The development strategy is based on a creative project which, by reinterpreting the aesthetic codes of the brand’s past, is building a new idea of beauty that will bring an icon of elegance and style with over 166 years of history into the future. Nowadays Borsalino presents two collections each year, for spring-summer and autumn-winter, including styles for men and women, in felt, Ecuadorian straw and fabric. Borsalino hats are distributed in 11 flagship boutiques and in approximately 550 selected stores worldwide, as well as on the official website.
