These hats are manufactured using old and rare equipment: sewing machines specifically designed for sewing straw dating from the early 20th century, aluminium forms from the 1950s and presses. Moreover, the company perpetuates the traditional manufacturing processes. The heat moulding of hats, the braiding, the colouring of the straw, a rare process among the other manufacturers, and the stitching are all done manually. For the development of new products the company works with several designers. The Willy’s Paris products are sold in France and abroad in shops specialising in hats.
