GREAT BRITISH HAT MAKERS
Christy and Co Ltd has been making hats since 1773. Having amassed over 200 years of experience throughout eight generations of its founding family, Christys is the world’s sole remaining company making hats in the traditional way. They have accumulated years of skills with unparalleled workmanship and individual attention to detail.
Christys has a rich history, with hats having been worn by members of the Royal family, Winston Churchill, Indiana Jones, Kate Moss & Liam Payne to name but a few!
Today Christys offer a collection of high quality men’s and woman’s hats ranging from formal, to fashion and sports hats. Christys’ hats are stocked worldwide from Liberty in London to Bergdorf Goodman in New York, not forgetting in our own Christys’ store in the Princes Arcade, London.
Christys also produce the metropolitan police force’s helmets and many more military headwear. Christys collaborates with many leading fashion designers such as Reiss, YMC, Mulberry and Oliver Sweeney and are regularly featured in magazines, television programs, films, at equestrian events and the most fashionable of weddings.
Christys hand make the majority of their hats in their factory in Witney – Oxfordshire where they use the best possible fabrications such as the handwoven panama from Ecuador and fine felts from Europe, with the aim to make luxury affordable hats.
