RAGNAR FEDORA by HUFVUD, is the inner child that wants to get out. It's the weary traveller who stopped to take of the hat and placed it on a bench. It's the person next to you, your neighbour and you best friend. Simply put, its your story.
I make hats that are not predetermined to stand for something (except my attempt at Indiana Jones Raiders bash) but a preparation for your life. When you go somewhere you pinch the crown, you touch the brim and you dust the hat off in all kinds of manners. The result becomes a representation of who you are and where you have been.
The year of HUFVUD will start with RAGNAR. As you might have noticed I tend to take Viking names to my hats as they are a close part of my ancestry from both Iceland and Sweden. RAGNAR LODBROK (or LOTHBROK) is not as close as HARALD FINEHAIR is to my past but is yet a part of history. The color red has nothing to do with Christmas, it was the color that was missing in my collection. Its a very rustic red color that looks either closer to ruby red and blood. It's still a very Unisex hat.
2018 will start with RAGNAR in various colors as well as other newness that I am not ready to reveal yet. HATMAKING has been all about the journey. From the time I moved home, with a single block under my arm to the development of a full studio that just keeps on growing. You the beholder, the owner and the enthusiast is as vital as the felt itself. The hat that I want to take on my journey is RAGNAR FEDORA.
Thank you for being a part of my story, I wish I can be part of yours in 2018. Happy New Years!
Side note: The color in the first picture is the best representation of the fur felt.
