Tesi has its origins back in the mid-1800s beginning as a small company specializing in producing and selling straw hats. In the late 19th century straw hats grew in popularity and Tesi grew with them. In the beginning of the 20th century the boater hat became a staple in men's fashion. Tesi refined their production process and modernized their equipment to keep up with the high demand for straw hats. To keep up with the changing styles and fashion trends Tesi began to import Panama Straw from the Americas and began production on a line of Panama Fedoras which they continue to produce out of their factory in Italy today.
