At Mad4Hats we create classic and elegant ranges of hand crafted hats, every one with a personal touch. Each is an individual piece designed with style and comfort in mind, designs are mostly influenced by 1920 and 1930 styles. The designs are design led rather than following fashion, sophisticated yet quirky, using simple lines and striking colours help to make the designs ageless and cross generational.
The majority of our hats are knitted, we use a combination of different luxury natural yarns and stitches to achieve the various textures we require, this along with our use of colour gives us our very distinctive fabric. Some of our hats we also put through our own felting process which gives us a very unique and soft finish.
We also create more structured hats and headpieces using traditional millinery techniques, hand blocked shapes using traditional wooden hat moulds.
To complement our hats we also make a range of wraps, scarves, collars and obis.
Our love of colour and texture along with the real enjoyment we get working with textiles is evident in our range. The high standard of workmanship and quality of our finished product is of the upmost importance to us.
