Brand/TATTON BAIRD HATTERS
From/Springville UTAH, U.S.A.
Craftsmanship inherited from classic hatmaking traditions and techniques.
TATTON BAIRD HATTERS, a hatmaking brand based out of Springville, Utah, is the legitimate heir to traditional hatmakers from the western region of the United States. Having worked as an apprentice to the Smith family, who inherited their hatmaking techniques from John Charles Tatton, Chandler Scott has kept the tradition alive today as the owner of TATTON BAIRD. In addition to the traditional techniques, even the antique tools and machines that he uses have been preserved, with some items having been around for over 100 years. Committed to using completely organic materials such as beaver, rabbit, and sheep wool, he continues to pass down the true and tested hatmaking techniques of his ancestors today.
His stance of manufacturing hats and selecting the right materials the same way his predecessors did back during a time when hats were an essential item for peoples’ everyday fashion is extremely rare in today’s modern age. He clearly has no hesitations when it comes to his preferred style of hatmaking.
