It's all about having the right hat – for you. Your height and personality will be different from everyone else; so will your instincts be about what suits you. Many hat-wearers are confident about wearing hats and choose a new hat instinctively, reaching for a size and style they are familiar with. Don't be surprised if I suggest a different size, shape or style – or different trims. My wish is for you to have the best possible hat for you and the occasion.
I make hats out of felt, silk, sinamay (a natural woven fabric made from the abaca tree) and straw covering over 60 colours. I never make hats out of paper. I don't die fabrics myself; it is not stable enough to ensure consistent colour and that it won't run.
