Harricana/Canadian Hat Workshop Guided Tours
For a few precious moments, enter the fascinating world of our craftsmen and discover their ancestral know-how. On the one hand, relive the story of one of Montreal's oldest milliner, Canadian Hat, founded in 1918. Admire the unusual and different personalities given by our craftspeople to thousands of hats that are a testimony of this accessory’s unwavering popularity through the ages.
On the other hand, understand the essence of Harricana's mission which has been to recycle and transform our ancestors’ furs for nearly 30 years. Thousands of fur coats handed down from generation to generation end up in our workshop. We meticulously preserve them and ensure that each little piece transcends time. Between the fingers of our artists, this noble and durable material becomes new fashion coats, cushions, handbags and pompoms that will be proudly worn by the next generation. Harricana's expertise extends to the transformation of cashmere, silk, leather and recycled wool.
See our craftsmen at work and walk through all the stages, from creation to sale, during a special 30-minute tour.
