Hello and welcome to Della’s Hat Box! My name is Kerri Klinger and I started Della’s Hat Box in 2011 after studying millinery techniques at the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC. It was in my very first millinery class where I became drawn to the craft and started to make more and more hats during my free time. Hand-sculpting and blocking the material into a hat is like meditation for me where the outside world melts away and I’m completely focused on every aspect of the hat I’m creating. Unlike many other milliners and designers, my designs are created spontaneously and no two are the same. Even when I try to plan the design, the final shape is ultimately determined by the movement of the felt and straw and where it wants to lead me.

In addition to making hats, I enjoy wearing them. A unique hat can be an accessory unlike any other. They have a way of transforming an ordinary day into one that’s special. It’s amazing how simply completing a look by wearing a special hat can have the power to make great things happen that day. I hope that Della’s Hat Box can offer just the right hat to make your day!

The name Della’s Hat Box was inspired by my great aunt, Della Welch, whom my family called “Aunt Dolly”. She was born in 1904 and came to the United States from Germany in 1909. She wore hats and I can visualize her wearing cloches during the 1920’s, especially during the dance competitions she enjoyed. Sadly, Aunt Dolly passed away in 2004 right before her 100th birthday. Her inspiration and encouragement has stayed with me though. She loved to paint and always appreciated my artwork and fashion creations. She encouraged me and supported my idea to go to the Fashion Institute of Technology for fashion design, which I then accomplished. I miss writing letters back and forth with her and her sense of humor. Della’s Hat Box is a tribute to my great Aunt Dolly who will always be with me.
