Made on a farm some 200 kilometers from Stockholm, Horisaki hats are conceived as works of art, the fruit of traditional craftsmanship, a guarantee of purity and luxury. Makoto Horisaki started out as a jewelry designer in the Scandinavian capital, where he met his partner Karin, a milliner for the Royal Court of Sweden.
Each hat takes weeks to make. Handcrafted on the couple's farm, the pieces are astonishingly well-cut, straightforward, sharp, unstructured and always masterful, reflecting a great sense of aesthetics. The chosen skins, beaver and rabbit, are treated "à l'ancienne", burned then water-molded, giving them a raw appearance, as well as solidity and suppleness. Patina work gives them a vintage look for a powerful style.
