Tilley's story is one built around necessity and innovation. Founded during the 1980s by Alex Tilley, the company arose from his desire for a hat to go with his sailboat; the Karmananda. He came to the world of hatmaking with an outsider's perspective, having never made hats before. But eventually through trial and error he finished the first Tilley, the T1. In the beginning the hats were sold at boat shows and after numerous positive feedback he realized he was on to something. The hats are proudly handmade in Canada and Tilley stands by their quality and craftsmanship which is why they come with a lifetime guarantee.
