Hills Hats, 30 Fitzherbert Street, Petone, are very excited to be releasing a short film – Hatmosphere: The Hills Hats Story. Check it out here…
Hills Hats Mission Statement: “Hills Hats have been around the hat business since 1875, so we know when you live in a land where being in the great outdoors is as much a way of life as it is a necessity, simple things like a good hat become valued commodities as much as essential companions.
That’s why we ensure each hat we make lives up to the expectations of our toughest customer, ourselves.”
FYI…Hills Hats have been manufacturing hats from their Petone factory for the last 16 years, however the factory has been in the Smuts-Kennedy family since 1950. The Petone factory was started off by manufacturing neck ties. The family also had a factory in Masterton.
