Balfour Hats

The company was founded in 1907 by Nathan Balfour who was later joined by his two sons. Originally based in the East End of London the factory moved to the West End in 1940 and to Luton in 1952.

Today the company is managed by a grandson and great grandson of the founder. In 2002 they moved from the town centre to a modern and spacious 20,000 square foot factory near to Junction 11 of the M1. Luton is situated 35 miles north of London and takes just 30 minutes by train.It has been the centre of the UK ladies hat manufacturing industry for more than 200 years.

After many years of manufacturing in England, as well as buying from many factories in the Far East, almost everything they now supply is produced in our own factory Unique located a short distance from Hong Kong.

In England they have a design studio with three talented designers who are continually creating new styles which can be ordered as seen or amended according to your requirements.

I recently ordered and received the Kenny Chesney Palm leaf hat. First of all, I am very impressed by its quality, shape and size! I was very concerned with it fitting and it fits perfectly. Thank you! I'm not a big review guy but I wanted to share my experience with you. Thanks again for the awesome service!

The hat arrived yesterday and my husband is so happy to have it back. You did an excellent job with the restoration. Thank you so much.


I just received my old hat which you made almost like new. The lining is perfect and you didn’t spoil the hats character. I’ve had this hat for 30 years and you have made it so beautiful; I’ll have it for a good time more! Thank you very much and may the Lord bless you all! Keep looking up.
