Mühlbauer Headware Vienna

The trendy handcrafted headwear from the traditional Viennese manufacture Mühlbauer has been synonymous with high-quality hat fashion in Vienna since 1903.

Mühlbauer creates headwear since 1903 and is worn by trendsetters around the world. Since the founders’ great-grandson Klaus Mühlbauer, a skilled milliner himself, and his sister Marlies took over the time-honoured hat manufacture, unconventional designshave been the order of the day, combined with new materials and forms.
