An history of craftsmen hat-makers…
Florence, a city of art and history, keeps jealousy secrets of its crafts, nowadays almost disappeared everywhere else: making hats today like yesterday, still working with the help of ancient machines and manual finishing. The constant attention to the prestige of handcraft, the passion for a carefully followed company for more than half a century has now reached its third generation of craftsmen hat-makers.
History joins the present to continue looking for new accessories for a current and international lifestyle, but always with a Tuscan know how. These are the strengths of Angiolo Frasconi S.r.l., born in Campi Bisenzio (one of the major centers from where the century-old fame of straw hat came into the world) in the immediate aftermath of war by the will of the founder Angiolo and his wife Carolina, then their son Alessandro and his wife Alessandra took over to the head of the company, who are now in charge joined by their neighbors Francesca and Franco.
The company is a historic member of the consortium Il Cappello di Firenze.
Based on the importance of family management and the know-how from the experience in the continuation of the traditional art of making straw hats, the firm is currently an entrepreneurial reality present on the world’s most important markets thanks to the high quality of its products all expertly hand-finished, to the hundreds of different styles proposed each year in more seasonal collections (Spring | Summer and Fall | Winter) and to the importance that every single creation can add to the charm and personality of the wearer. In the modern world, where manual processing is disappearing, Angiolo frasconi carries on his tradition of craftsmen hat-makers with enthusiasm.
