Announcement    The Ultimate Eco-luxury!
Recycling fur coats into a renewable and reusable product is
SMART, and ECO-FRIENDLY.

I have made over 4,000 hats for people for all over the world. I am very proud to say that I have had:
4 hat featured in a Mongolian museum exhibit
2 Hats featured in the 2013 commercial for
"Free Credit Score.com"
Featured in two music videos
Asian Art Research Co. Toronto
Amazing Canadian Fashion Magazine – 2016
Hat featured in a viking film - The Final Battle of Grettir the Strong.
6 hats - New York Historical Society
2 hats - Buxton Museum, Derbyshire, England.
Made a hat for Royalty - Princess Sonam Dechan Wangchuck of Motithang Palace in Thimphu, Bhutan

Fur, leather and wool are biodegradable resources.
Synthetics are generally made from petroleum (a non-renewable resource),
which is NOT consistent with the sustainable use of our environment. The
production, transportation and disposal of petrochemicals can cause
environmental problems.

By using recycled materials from natural resources we help to reduce waste.
We are more aware of what the consequences are today than we were
many years ago, so lets think smart and eco-friendly.

Intriguing Designs is for the individual who loves elegant and unique quality
clothing. "One of a Kind" artistic custom made unisex hats
and coats have a look that is soft, sensual, rich and fashionable.

Custom orders welcome.

I believe in quality, service and guarantee

I do not charge for handling only shipping. So email me and tell me where you are from and I will find out the true shipping charges for you. I live in the country so I only go once a week to the mail so once that day has come and gone I will have to wait until the next.

About Micheleshats

On Etsy since 2008

From one hat to over 4,000!

Even though it says I started Etsy in 2008 I never started to sell until Nov. 2011.

I started my business after my husband died in a car accident.

When my husband was alive it was just a hobby and then after his death I took some time off of work to heal. Working with my hands helped me to cope.

Now I can actually say that I have my products all over the world!

My home is my sanctuary. This is where I create. In the storm of winters's snow fall I huddle up to the fire place with my cats and dog and sew my hats by hand. In the Summer time I sit on my deck over looking the Mighty Fraser River and watch the Eagles fly as I work.

My dog Zeus, my cats luna and Bentley a polydactyl (6 toes on all 4 paws) all rescues are the supervisors of all my work. Nothing goes out without being inspected by them.

I ship regular post. There is no tracking on international orders on small packages, but the duvets and pillows are tracked and sent expedited.
