I’ve helped 100’s of women find their perfect hat since I began the business in 2012.
My passions lie in helping others & creating elegant handcrafted heirlooms.
I want my clients to look and feel elevated, during their most special occasions
My clients are at the heart of every hat I create. It’s my mission to help women feel amazing, through wearing their perfect hat or headpiece.
I understand the difficulty and time involved in finding the right hat. One which suits you, your outfit, occasion and compliments your personality and outlook. I work on a individual basis with each client to help you achieve your vision.
As a small craft business, I lovingly design and meticulously create each hat by hand.
Traditional Millinery techniques include silk flower making and hand-dyeing.
I want my clients to feel confident and excited, ready to wear their beautiful new heirloom hats.
Beautifully designed and made by hand, each hat is lovingly created by the founder Joanne, carrying with it the love of the process and the people who it is created for
