Slightly more than 100 years after its founding, this long-standing family company was taken over by Klaus Mühlbauer of the fourth generation. He concentrates on the origin of the firm – hats – and has given a new face to collections and brands. Together with the two fashion designers Nora Berger and Barbara Gölles, he designs the hat collections, supported by a successful team of hat makers and modistes in the Vienna manufactory. The finest hand craftsmanship and the best, most sought after materials in the world render the quality visible and palpable. The path of renewal is bringing the company global success.
