    Fun fact

    Not all young and budding hat-makers such as yourselves had such a fun time of it. In the early 20th century, the process of making felt for hats involved the use of mercury, a highly toxic substance. Prolonged exposure can cause damage to the nervous system, tremors and dementia. Hence, the phrase "Mad as a hatter" was born
