In 1924 David Hanna Snr. started a small tailoring firm in the townland of Donegal on Ireland's north-west coast, and its still a family business today. Hanna Hats of Donegal are unique as all of our styles are cut to patterns designed by Hanna Hats and assembled by hand at our factory in Donegal Town. They use the finest Donegal tweed (pure new wool) woven exclusively. The very first 'Hanna' hat was created in 1964 and it took four and a half hours to complete. It was called the 'Hanna Hat' and given the style number '84'
