MÜHLBAUER HAT MAKERS SINCE 1903
Every hat is made according to artisan tradition in the Mühlbauer workshop in Vienna. Because we are convinced this produces the very best results. Because the highest quality material and craftsmanship can only be produced by hand. The Mühlbauer hat manufactory combines craft with contemporary design. Klaus Mühlbauer, the fourth generation in his family to create hats, designs the collections in collaboration with designers Nora Berger and Selma Klima. They deliberately seek experimentation in order to consistently create something new. Current affairs and styles are constantly monitored by Mühlbauer as it is all about creating headwear that fits seamlessly into everyday life.
This did not remain secret for long. More than half the hats leaving the workshop in Vienna head for international destinations. The headwear with the unmistakable curved M as a trademark can be found in the most renowned stores around the world. No wonder famous personalities such as Brad Pitt, Meryl Streep, Madonna or Yoko Ono are customers. Cooperations with design labels including Kenzo, Junya Watanabe, Nigo, Akris, Vanessa Bruno and with artists such as Erwin Wurm underline Mühlbauer's interest in the continual development of headwear fashion.
"The fascinating thing about hat making is the creative intervention on the head - the most visible part of the human body. With dexterity, sensitivity and know-how, you can work wonders: style-forming and identity-creating." Klaus Mühlbauer
