Urbi et Orbi was a milliner based in Yokohama during the 1950s and 1960s.  We find it fascinating that a Japanese milliner would name his firm after the Latin phrase meaning “To the City and the World” used by the pope for his most  solemn form blessings in the Catholic Church.   We wish we could find more information about this enigmatic hat maker.
