How to Shop
Once Upon a time, twenty two years ago, I was hit with the epiphany that my purpose in life was to make hats. Driven by my desire to start upon a journey of self fulfillment I found a felting class. On a snowy Saturday I was taught how to make felt hats and fell in love with creating fashion from natural fiber. The process of felting is a very old art that requires hot water, wool, soap, elbow grease and a few simple tools. After taking this felting class I produced a few hats and put them in my father’s country store in Stowe, Vermont. They sold immediately. These hats were light hearted and fun! After years of practice I have perfected my techniques for creating wearable art and so my hats have grown and changed from lighthearted to sophisticated. My designs are and always have been inspired by nature… flowers, trees, animals and all beautiful that surrounds me.
My hats are created in the cottage industry tradition, support local women and their families and are individually hand made using the finest materials. The production of my hats is environmentally friendly… only water,soap and wool are used. Each and every hat is one of a kind and unique to the wearer.
