Spanish Cordobes Hat
100% wool with leather inner band and a strap to keep it fastened on the head. Waterproof. An old traditional hat that has met the latest Haute Couture.
The Cordobès Hat is a round, stiff felt hat which hails from Cordoba in Spain. While originally it was popularised by workers for the shade provided by its stiff wide brim, it has very much infused itself into the traditional culture of Spain.
Today it is an icon in many great Spanish Artforms – Flamenco, Bull fighting, Equestrian Arts and other traditional festivals in Southern Spain. It has become an integral part of the pageantry and spectacle. Dancers use it as a focal point in many routines and it regularly appears in costumes and celebrations.

Cordobes style hats are fashionable during the springtime fairs around Southern Spain, and their wide brims keep the sun away from your face. There is none more famous than the one crafted by Antonio García, which has been the leading house of hats in Seville since 1847. Little has changed about the construction of these handmade hats in the last 150 years, and the variety can’t be beat by any other establishment. Taking into account size, purpose and material, the warehouse has a cordobés for every taste. Antonio García also has monteras, the hat bullfighters sport, products for horses, caps and even top hats for purchase, all sealed up in a powder blue box for safekeeping when you arrive home.
