I am a musician and a hatter. I was buying and tweaking hats from around the world before teaching myself to become a hatter. I now offer a broad range of handmade, unisex hats and caps inspired by the bowlers and swagger of the Cholitas from Bolivia, the Tibetan Cowboys, the dandy Congolese Sapeurs, the sharp dressed Up Town Rockers of Jamaica and many many more...
For added stature and comfort each hat is fitted with detachable cushioning or a small turban, thus TURBANESQUES. These hats will sit a little higher than usual (you want to be seen don't you?) but you can wear these pieces as you like; the cushioning will take care of that.
I am working with felt, straw, fur (fake) and African/Dutch wax prints. I am always looking to collaborate with other artists/visionaries on new concepts designs and finishes.
My studio is based on 'Johnsons Island' in West London. And yes, it actually sits on a tiny island on the river Brent and the Grand Union Canal next to Thames. If you love a hat drop by.
