mühlbauer hat manufactory.

Last night I was invited to tour the hat manufactory of Mühlbauer along with a few fellow bloggers. Founded in 1903, the family-owned manufactory produces gorgeous hats and special head-pieces. I was blown away by the whole process … I still can’t believe that everything is done by hand here in Vienna. I’ll just let the pictures do the talking!

{love the “old” sewing machines & as Mr. Mühlbauer said: why change something that’s still working fine?!}

      aww, thank you Bella :) I usually don’t think hats look good on me due to my round face. but I kind of liked this one!

    Guten Morgen!
    Schöne Bilder. :) Ich hab ja Grundsätzlich einen Faible für Hüte in allen Formen und Varianten, aber diese sind besonders toll. Besonders der mit den bunten Kordeln. Ich finde es toll dass sowas schönes hier in Österreich gemacht wird. Btw. meine Oma hat auch noch so eine alte Pfaff Nähmaschine. Das sind schon tolle Stücke von denen man sich nie trennen sollte. Ausserdem sind sie wirklich unkaputtbar. ;)

    This is so awesome – In a weird way, each piece shows off the tradition and love that I’m sure exists at this manufactory.

    Thanks for sharing!
