How to order?

If you like something from our gallery or you have your own model of headgeare, please drop a massage to: karolina@krueger.pl I try to precisely answer your questions and advice, if you need any help.

Our headgear are produced from handmade wool felt (for special orders we made fur felt as well). Our caps and hats are replicas, manufactured according to historically proved way of hatmaking. No industrial felt bodies are used. We do not use sewing machine also. All sewing elements are handmade, with silk or linen thread. All materials used for stiffening, waterproofing and trimming are natural and compatible with period you reconstruct.

When you have chosen your type of headgear, now it is time to decide how it should be finished. You have three possibilities:

Basic:

  • a properly shape felt hat/cap,
  • stiffed and waterproofed if required,
  • an inside headband/ sweatband (leather or textile).

Standard

  • a properly shape felt hat/cap,
  • stiffed and waterproofed if required,
  • an inside headband/ sweatband (leather or textile),
  • lining (silk, linen, wool, cotton – according to your preferences).

Premium:

  • a properly shape felt hat/cap,
  • stiffed and waterproofed if required,
  • an inside headband/ sweatband (leather or textile),
  • lining (silk, linen, wool, cotton – as you like),
  • outside trimming: edges trimmed with handmade cord, bands or textile; crown bands, plumes, tassels etc. (we try to do our best to make you happy!)

Each piece of our headgear is made to order. Correct dimension of your head is essential. There is manual below how you should do it:

jak zmierzyć glowę.22
Head height: distance from one ear to the second. This measure means how deep you “push” the hat on your head.
jak zmierzyć glowę.11
Head circuit: place the string or tape around your head about 0,5cm; 1/8″ above your ear, across the mid-forehead, completely circling your head. Place the tape in the way you like to wear the hat: more on the top or more at the back of your head etc.

Remeber: if your measurement falls between sizes, choose the next LARGEST size. You will always get extra piece of felt. You can  put it behind the headband to adjust your size.

How to care of your hat:

Never, ever wash your hat or felt cap in washing machine! You can brush or delicate wash it by hand in lukewarm water. Remember: the best place for a hat is Your Head, not the bottom of your bag.

Warranty and service:

Once in a year you should send your hat (particularly widebrim one) to us for further stiffening/waterproofing. You just pay for shipping in the first year and the service is provided for free. After that time you pay a little fee.
