Nora and Sam met through their kids, and they were friends for three years before it dawned on them that they could go into business tougher. They love dreaming up new hat designs in their Vermont studio and playing dress-up with customers at craft fairs.
They begin by blocking pure merino wool hoods on antique wooden hat forms, shaping many of our unique brims by hand. The beautiful Vermont landscape that surrounds us influences our designs and we trim many of our hats with locally found or grown objects (metal, roots, feathers and vintage fabrics).
Our hats begin in the hills of Vermont, but transcend their rustic roots in style and artistry, and have travelled the world over.
