Nick Fouquet is very relevant today because he makes hats…by hand using traditional, old-school techniques.
He uses 100% beaver skin, the harvest of which is completely sustainable and friendly to nature.
Each hat has something from his traveling experiences and his bohème mentality. That is why his creations suit those who can share his traveler’s attitude and boho style.
Feathers, velvet, raw fabrics and a match decorate his western style hats, while inside, you always find a silk lining and some kind of symbol.
When you wear a Fouquet hat, you wear a story…which is yours now too.
