Our Story

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


 Along with a carefully curated range of brands, we design and make our own house line.

We draw our inspiration from our feminine heroines -- strong and brilliant women who made history -- and we name each of the styles in our line after them. 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 years. Our assortment of wooden hat blocks shape each hat with the help of a little steam (and supervision by Thurman the Golden). 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 offer 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.
