Handmade Vintage Style Hats

I make retro style hats for both women and men. I collect vintage wool fabric and use it to create 1920s style Cloches, Men’s Driving Caps and Irish Walking Hats among other styles. The fabulous quality of vintage fabrics really inspires me. I hope you are as impressed with that quality as I am.

For spring and summer hats I use high quality linens and cottons – many I import from Japan.

I’ve been a Costume Properties Artisan and made accessories for the stage for over ten years. I’ve worked with a variety of designers from around the world and have created everything from foul-mouthed puppets to leather gorgets to spats, crowns and sword belts. I enjoy it all but I absolutely LOVE making hats and hope you enjoy them too!
