Our Story


Using traditional techniques to create modern hats for the everyday ensemble.

  

We offer a constantly changing, seasonal selection of hats for women and men. Along with a carefully curated range of brands, we design and make our own house line right here in the shop.

We hand block, trim and sew our hats on a vintage buffet - the drawers filled with ribbon, new and vintage, collected with care over the past years. Our assortment of wooden hat blocks shape each hat with the help of a little steam. The entire process is free from chemicals and starches, and we end up with something pure and simple, and extremely wearable.

We are passionate about offering styles that can accompany you to the dog park, to the beach, or to a family gathering. When life throws you fantastic occasions, we're happy to make you the perfect accessory for your Kentucky Derby debut, your son's wedding, or that Gatsby party your colleague is throwing. Sometimes life throws you things less fantastic, and we are pleased to offer a wide variety of cashmere hats for people going through chemo. Having something lovely to wear on your head helps you feel that you haven’t lost your sense of self. We try to help make treatment easier.

We hope you enjoy shopping our website, and we invite you to visit us in person when you are next in town. Don't forget to say hello to Thurman!
