When I first started to scout for vintage garments for my boutique at estate and barn sales I found that there were a lot of beautiful vintage dresses and gowns that were severly damaged and were on the way to the dumpster. The orginal shape of the garment may have been in shreds, but the fabric and adorments were worth saving. So I decided to design and create my own own of a kind upcycled hats.

Each of our hats are created out of love and passion and are truly an heirloom piece in the making.

We have saved countless yards of material that would have been thrown into our growing garbage dumps. Our green philosophy can also be found in our packaging. We use 100% recycled materials for all of our boxes and even the tissue that we use to wrap our hats in. Being thoughtful to our environment, saving the vintage garments of the past and creating beautiful pieces for those to cherish for years to come at an affordable price is our mission and promise.
