A hat for the stylish maximalist!

This hat combines so many lovely materials that I hardly know where to begin! For starters, I blocked a luscious, aubergine-colored velour felt on a custom hat block based on a 1940's hat in my personal collection. The crown of this little percher is wreathed in an absolutely gorgeous rust-colored silk veiling into which I nestled leather and silk zinnias that I commissioned from M&S Schmalberg in NYC, based on zinnias I grew in my own garden. Just peaking out under the zinnias are a few hand-cut felt oak leaves. Accented with cut pheasant feathers, this beauty is the very essence of autumn.

I added a bandeau of the same aubergine felt with a loop of elastic at the back, rendering this perching hat comfortably wearable by just about anyone. If you have any questions about sizing, please don't hesitate to ask!

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Yes, I'd be delighted to work with you on the custom hat of your dreams! Give me a sense of what you're looking for and I can provide you with an estimate of turnaround time and cost. Please just ask!

    I like a hat in your shop but would prefer it had a different trim. Can you swap out the trim on an existing hat for me?

    In some cases I can do this and in some cases I can't. Please don't hesitate to ask and we can discuss it!

    How do I care for and store my new hat?

    I'm so glad you asked! Avoid wearing a straw hat in wet weather because it will quickly lose its shape in the rain. You may also find that some dyed straws' colors will run when wet.

    Avoid getting fabric trims like silk flowers, ribbon ornaments and veils wet as these can still look droopy even after they dry again.

    If a felt hat becomes wet, stuff it loosely with tissue before allowing it to dry. If your felt looks dull or dusty, you can use a bristle brush to brush up the nap again.

    To store, stuff your hat loosely with tissue paper to hold its shape, and put it in its hat box away from dust and sunlight. Never hang a hat or keep it on a stand or its shape could become distorted over time.
