My journey in handmade products began 60 years ago, when I trained at a trade school in France. I started with period costumes for porcelain dolls, and home decor.
I started making hats 25 years ago. I use top quality heavy canvas, which is water repellant and treated for protection from UV rays. They are sturdy and wash and travel well. They are finished with trims and embellishments.
I also make hats from re-purposed clothing. Using denim jeans and tweed jackets I take pieces with the pockets, zipper, and buttons etc fashioning unique hats. They are very labour intensive, made one at a time. Each one is a work of art.=
