As hatters, it is essential for us to certify to our customers a total transparency approach on the manufacturing of our products. Our code of conduct is clear: we produce and value local know-how to the maximum.
Popular for winter, our felts are manufactured in Portugal before being molded on our presses in the Paris region. Our felts are the result of a mastery of know-how linked to an innovative manufacturing process. They evolve in their technicality and meet the requirements of high-end aesthetics, waterproofing and durability.
Our straws come from Ecuador, the world cradle of Panama ? According to the traditional method of Cuenca, famous for its rosette weaving, our straws are hand woven by craftsmen. This know-how is registered since 2012 in the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO. In order to preserve an authentic craft that is becoming scarce, La Cerise sur le Chapeau is committed to the preservation of Panama, securing the future of this unique world heritage.
We have always worked with the best craftsmen, including Julien Faure, an exceptional French ribbon maker since 1864. An unrivalled specialist in complex weaving techniques on century-old shuttle looms, the family business is a French reference in the manufacture of grosgrain, supplying the most prestigious fashion houses.
