RES fur felts are all hand blocked using traditional hatter methods. We have a collection of both open blocks and blocks with shapes. I spent a period under the tutelage of a master hatter Jim Whittington of Salt Lake City Utah in 2009 and 2010. Most of the hatter techniques that I learned in Salt Lake City are no longer being practiced. I have in my tool collection, both vintage and reconstructions of the first hatter used in industry. I use a variety of both traditional and contemporary embellishments: leather, feathers, silk, and many other elements. Thats what makes a RES hat unique.
