In the shadow of the Bluestack Mountains in northwestern Ireland, the town of Donegal has been renowned for its handwoven wool tweed for generations. A skilled weaver, working at a bench loom, could make up to 30 yards of fabric in a day, using home-raised wool that was often dyed using natural and local materials including moss, yellow gorse, and blackberries. Today the town's largest manufacturer of wool tweed is the Magee, Molloy & McNutt factory, which presides over Donegal's town center in a large redbrick building. About 25 local craftsmen still work on hand looms in their homes, filling the demand for the bespoke look of a well-tailored tweed suit or cap. This classic herringbone-patterned hat is 100% wool and handcrafted in Ireland.

In 1924 David Hanna Sr. started a small tailoring firm in Donegal, where he eventually decided to specialize in the making of handcrafted hats and caps. The very first ''Hanna Hat'' was created in 1964 and it took four and a half hours to complete. Hanna's vintage patchwork cap is one of the most unique of the company's designs. Each is a one-of-a-kind combination of tweed patterns and blends of color, guaranteed to complement virtually everything in your wardrobe. The wool is naturally moisture-repellent as well, and perfect for all kinds of weather.

                    The hat looks great: good material and workmanship. The hat is stylish, foldable, warm and better in the wind than anything else except a stocking hat. I have/had several similar hats that were size 6 3/4 or 7 inches (or equivalent mm sizing) that fitted firmly. The sizing is way off. In the small size, I can easily, simultaneously stick both thumbs under the band at my ears and it is still slightly loose.

                      One of the most attractive hats out there. 100% wool, bold herringbone pattern with flecks of color. Real snap brim not found on less expensive hats This is an original. Lower priced hats from other hat retailers do not compare. No way to adjust fit. I bought an L, which is a little loose however an M would have been too snug.

                      The Indian city of Madras, now called Chennai, has been home to a cotton textile industry for more than a millennium. During the era of British colonization, Scottish regiments were stationed in Madras, and mills began producing their traditional lightweight fabric in Scotland's iconic tartans. The plaid fabric became known by its city of origin, and Madras has been a summertime staple in Western fashion ever since.

                      Almost every household in Bhadohi, northern India’s “Carpet City,” has some connection to designing, weaving, and selling rugs. Legend has it that the industry began 400 years ago when some Iranian travelers, in gratitude for the hospitality they received, stayed behind to teach Bhadohis the art of weaving rugs. Whatever its origins, Bhadohi’s weavers now turn out some of the world’s most sought-after carpets in both antique patterns and contemporary designs like this hypnotic, hand-woven herringbone.
