Craftsmanship, wisdom and old mesmerizing tools.
I was at the same time struck by a “punk rock” spirit, hands moving over material in new and unexpected ways.
This book is a tribute to a truly inspiring group of people who have fundamental knowledge about hat making and a deep mastery in their hands.
