  • Cocktail Hats & Fascinators

    Cocktail Hats & Fascinators are like the bows on top of presents. They're not designed to be anything other than lovely. Cocktail hats are larger than fascinators but smaller and less dimensional than, say, a pillbox style hat. Fascinators are smaller - just a little party on your head. There are a variety of "attachment" options for both including combs, pin-loops, elastic, barrettes and headbands. To create these little treasures, we use a variety of traditional sewing and millinery techniques including buckram, wire-work and fine fabrics. Each one is hand-stitched and may be embellished with vintage or handmade flowers, feathers, rhinestones, buttons or other fanciful frippery.

  • Cut & Pieced Hats

    Our Cut & Pieced hats combine traditional sewing and millinery techniques including buckram, wire-work and fine fabrics. Each one is hand-stitched, fully-lined and includes a petersham sweat-band. Our stock of fabrics is constantly changing and we often use vintage materials. If you fall in love with a particular hat and we no longer have that fabric - never fear! We will pull together comparable color combinations and send you photos to approve before we begin.
  • Felt Hats

    Our Felt Hats are blocked one at a time on traditional wooden hat blocks. We use the highest-quality rabbit-fur velour felt (although we will use use traditional 100% wool if you prefer) and each one is hand-stitched, fully-lined and includes a calf-skin leather sweat-band. Many colors of felt are available and the decorative details are limited only by your imagination. We invite you to purchase one of our beautiful in-stock hats or peruse the listing the below to find a point-of-departure for your own custom hat-fantasy.
  • Sinamay Hats

    Our Sinamay Hats are a combination of sinamay (a sustainable fabric woven from the processed stalks of the abaca tree, a banana palm) brims and crowns blocked one at a time on traditional wooden hat blocks then hand-stitched together. Some designs incorporate traditional millinery techniques including buckram and fine fabrics and each one is fully-lined and includes a petersham sweat-band. Many colors of sinamay are available and the decorative details are limited only by you imagination. We invite you to purchase one our beautiful in-stock hats or peruse the listing the below to find a point-of-departure for your own custom hat-fantasy.
