Yesterday (March 19th 2021) I bought a lovely brown felt lady's hat from an antiques shop in New Zealand, a little like a bowler, embellished with pink and brown feathers. They could tell me nothing about it, but, like yours, the band inside has the words: an EMKAY product. Printed inside the crown are the words HOOD Made in England 2078. So their range obviously included different materials, but I can't find anything else as yet
