A retro style hat. Winter fashion for the eco conscious.
This felt design hat was individually crafted in Dublin, Ireland using the ancient art of felt making. The hat was then hand blocked and stiffened (using only natural products). It was hand wired, sewn and finished. Irish tweed remnants were used for the trim tweed giving this piece its original Irish feel.
Like a lot of us now, I believe the fashion future is in sustainable, ethical, slow fashion. Hand felting is, as well as a sustainable process, a process that invites us to slow down. Allowing time, hands on their own were able to create the alchemy, and transform fibres into felt just with the help of water and soap.
Sustainability has been a priority throughout the process, from the sourcing of the fibres, the no waste policy, the choice of labels, packaging etc.
I would be delighted to answer any question about my sustainability story.
