Throughout Europe there begin to spring up textile production units for the production of hats. In Serbia, in 1919, the Dragan brothers moved their father’s workshop from Melenci to Zrenjanin. Next year, The Dragan Brothers Hat Factory started working. Initially, they only produced male and female hats, and in 1925 they expanded their factory and started to produce hat bodies for hats.
