The popular hat Karl is a narrow-brimmed gentleman’s shape from the "Tracht" (traditional costume) series. Shape, colour and stylistic details that are typical of traditional headwear in the alpine region have been united in this hat. Therefore the hat is decorated with a silk cord and a small felt pocket in which one can put a feather or tuft of chamois hair (gamsbart). This hat is made of the finest antelope felt. "Antelope" because the felt is soft and smooth like antelope skin. In reality it is made of 100% rabbit hair and is one of the best and densest felt qualities available. The slightly crushed appearance is not just a consciously chosen stylistic detail, but also allows the hat to be folded and packed in a bag without "destroying" it - making it the perfect hat for travel. The brim is edged in a grosgrain ribbon and has a bendy hat wire hidden in it, so the brim can be styled as you wish. Karl is worn by men and women.
