Meet Adi Bertacchi

Adi is the founder and business owner of Bertacchi Hatcrafter. He grew up in Tuscany, where his father introduced him to the hat crafting world. Adi was fascinated by the attention to detail and the passion every hat-maker possessed to create unique Tuscan masterpieces. Adi was hooked. He developed the same passion and came to Vancouver to share his love for high quality hats from Tuscany with us. This is where he fell in love with Vancouver and its people and decided to stay.

Cappelleria Bertacchi produces Italian design handcrafted hats and head wear, and offers service of re-blocking, cleaning, customization, design and creation of custom pieces for special events (e.g. church hats, fascinators etc.)! Cappelleria Bertacchi is run by the Bertacchi family from Siena (Italy).
