was started by Marsha Akins in 1974 in her one room, 4th floor, walk-up apartment in New York City's East Village. Using a Jiffy Steamer, she molded the raw hat bodies over her own specially designed wood blocks and then baked the hats dry in the oven in her apartment before trimming them. Now, more than 36 years later and in her 3rd factory, Makins Hats is a family run business still making hats by hand. We are honored to offer you Makins Hats custom made for SALMAGUNDI!
