Hanna Hats story begins in 1924 when David Hanna Snr established a tailoring company in Donegal, on Ireland’s Northwest coast. In 1964 David recognised a decline in demand for tailored suits and so began handcrafting bespoke headwear.
In 1974 David’s sons began managing the family business, ensuring the tradition and quality of their father’s work was retained. In 1986 John Hanna took over David Hanna & Sons which became Hanna Hats of Donegal Ltd. John continued creating innovative tweed products using the traditions passed on from his father. At the heart of everything he created was quality and craftsmanship.
Today, John’s children carry their father and grandfather’s vision as a third generation family business. They take pride in the fact that all of our products are our own original designs and each one is assembled by hand in Donegal.
