Culturally inspired yet universal, historical yet timeless, handcrafted to wear forever...
I’m a self-taught artisan hatmaker based in Seattle, Washington. I craft my hats mostly by hand from textiles, furs, leathers and found objects that I rescue from thrift stores, your grandmother’s closet, and clothier’s cutting room floors. I have been credited with keeping several hundred pounds of textiles out of landfills over the past 30+ years.
Each of my hats is a unique piece of wearable art inspired by places I have visited, and my self-guided cultural and historical studies. Travel has become an intrinsic motivation behind many of my most popular designs.
