Olney Headwear

Headwear manufacturers, Olney Headwear Ltd, are based in Luton which has been the centre of hat making in the United Kingdom for nearly three hundred years. 

The Olney family story began in 1914, when with a world war looming Albert Olney then aged 37 left his secure job as a foreman blocker with the largest producer of straw boater hats in the country to start his own business. In 2014 the company proudly celebrated its centenary, and with the continued dedication of a loyal and committed staff, will continue to look to grow and develop further markets, championing UK quality made headwear.
