Since 1946, when Stig Andersen’s father set up the company with his friend Berner, hats have been made in a backyard in Nørrebro in Copenhagen. After a number of years, however, Berner left the company, put his hat on the shelf, and instead bought a tavern, which he ran for many years. Mr. Andersen, on the other hand, continued to make hats, and in 1983 Stig Andersen, his son, took over the hat factory in Nørrebro.
Due to the gentrification of the district, and the associated urban renewal and rent increases, the factory has been forced to move out of Nørrebro, and has been relocated in Helsinge, North Zealand. Read more in our report on Danish headwear, on the pageHatters and Milliners in Copenhagen in 2019.
