Founded in the first half of the 20th century, Giovannio was initially an importer of fine Italian women’s accessories for the American market. However, the founder always had one dream – to design and manufacturer hats that women would love to wear every day. With an emphasis on styling and quality Giovanni surrounded himself with those who had spent their lives in the millinery business. Thus, he was thus able to create hats of distinct quality and appearance.
In 2000, the original company was acquired by F&M Hat Company Inc. – a fourth generation vertical manufacturer of felt bodies and men’s headwear. Since then, the company has stayed true to its core values and origins with headwear hand crafted from innovative designs and high quality textiles.
