Who could fail to love the iconic classic that is the cloche hat? Emerging in the 1920s, it was worn throughout the 30s and into the 40s. Beautifully crafted from wool felt in a range of colours this is a great addition to any wardrobe.
All our hats are personally handmade to order by the talented Jane. Here’s what she has to say about her work:
"I’ve been making hats for longer than I’m prepared to admit. It’s always been a passion. I love that when you put on a hat you feel so different. There will often be a strong reaction, and sometimes it’s fits of laughter, but when you’ve got the right hat, it’s pure delight.
I make hats in the style of the vintage eras that I love, especially the 20’s through to the 50s. Many of them are uni sized as they perch on the head and stay on with an elastic, and/or if you’re brave, a hat pin.
I love the swing dance scene, the styles, the upbeat music and love, love, love to dance – although I really need to practise more!! (Too busy making hats!). I try to make styles that are fairly small and close fitting, so one can dance unhindered."
All hats are shipped for free and come in their own hat box.
