The Russian Ushanka in the English-speaking world, it is sometimes referred to as a shapka. However, this usage is not accurate, but is rather a Russian language word meaning simply 'hat'. Ushanka literally translates as 'ear flaps hat'.
Though ushanka hats are a distinctly Russian hat, indeed, the stereotypical Russian is seen to wear one. The wearing of fur hats of similar design is common throughout China, North Korea, Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. It is possible that Russians adopted this design from Mongols during the Middle Age Mongol invasion of Russia.
Russian hats are often made from rabbit fur and muskrat fur, though other animal fur, such as beaver fur or coyote fur, are not uncommon for Russian hats, with particularly fine examples being made of mink fur, raccoon fur or high-quality sheepskin.
The increasing worldwide demand for Russian style fur hats has prompted us to make it a priority to offer them in a wide variety of designs using a variety of fur, leather, and sheepskin choices.
