Borsalino was founded by Giuseppe Borsalino in Alessandria on April 4, 1857, and is currently the oldest luxury hat manufacturer in Italy. Borsalino gained international recognition in 1900 at the Paris Exposition Universelle. The brand awarded the Grand Prix, and this prize proved the quality of Borsalino hats. And Borsalino has become a famous brand.

Borsalino opened its first boutique in 1925 in Alessandria, where it was founded. Borsalino hats, which fame has spread throughout the world, took its place among the most famous brands that celebrities prefer. In the legendary production Casablanca, starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman, Borsalino hats became a cult object for Hollywood. Marcello Mastroianni wore Borsalino hats in his famous film 8½. And Jean Paul Belmondo also appeared with Borsalino hats in Breathless.

In the 1950s, Borsalino hats introduced a collection of hats explicitly designed for women in addition to the men's collection. Borsalino, which later added Panama hats to its portfolio, has managed to maintain its quality and popularity for 160 years. One of the essential pieces of the men's fashion of the 1930s and 1940s was hats. Borsalino was one of the leading brands in those years with the hats it designed, and it still continues to be the trendsetter brand in hat fashion.
