Hat Cleaning, Hat Blocking and Repairs

Cleaning and blocking a hat?  What is that all about?   Well, before this age of planned obsolescence and throwaway disposable items, it was good practice to take care of your beloved possessions as they could last your entire lifetime.  

Men and Women hats can be cleaned blocked trimmed and shaped

If you have a hat made of good materials, such as a fine straw or fine felt it is worthwhile maintaining and restoring this accessory.   Felt hats made of furs from beaver or rabbit fur are particularly good for cleanings and restorations.

A well made hat that has completely lost it's shape can be made to look new again after a specialized cleaning and replacement of leather sweatband and ribbon trims along with stiffening, hardening and reshaping as required

We can make your hat larger or smaller and get you that comfortable perfect fit.




Hats are unlike other clothing as they can be over 100 years old and still be restored to a new looking condition.    This is true in the instances of beaver fur
felt hats.  Believe it or not, beaver felt hats have a long history and are responsible for much of the colonization  in the USA and riches in early New York City.   Beaver pelts for good hats made John Jacob Astor fabulously wealthy in the late 1700's and early 1800's... here is a photo of a beaver on a tile taken at the Astor place train station.  If you have seen it on the tiles, you may have wondered what this was all about.  Hats!
