BATOG hats and headpieces are exquisitely handcrafted in Florence with love, passion and extreme focus on the perfection of details.
Our Atelier is situated between the Duomo and Piazza della Signoria, in the heart of Florence - a place with a long history in hat making and with some of the best craftsmen in the world.
You can choose both designs already available in our shop section or contact us to commission a bespoke hat to highlight and finish your outfit. In this case, we usually fix an appointment for an initial consultation in our Atelier. A visit here is always relaxed, positive and “one of a kind” experience.
The initial consultation takes about one hour and you have the opportunity to try on lots of styles from our collection.
We have a huge variety of fabrics available in the atelier but we kindly advice you to bring your dress (or a picture of it) and a swatch of the fabric for a perfect color match. There will be one fitting to ensure that you are happy and check if the the hat fits perfectly or requires any adjustment (some orders - due to their complexity - may require further fittings). Your order will be ready shortly after.
Visiting the Atelier you also have the rare opportunity to see where the magic happens…how each hat and headdress is hand-blocked on wooden hat blocks…how everything is cut, shaped and sewn by hand. We take great care about any small detail which is tailored to meet your vision.
We have the sensitivity and the ability to work with different styles and designs and we aim to highlight the personality and uniqueness of each woman.
In case you have no idea about your design we would be happy to offer you the best assistance in choosing the design that works perfectly for you and fits the required etiquette of the event you attend to.
