Absolutely the best sun hat I have ever owned. Feminine, provides of shade, and big enough to fit my giant head.

About

Floradora is an enchanting line of uniquely shaped, ornamented and hand blocked straw hats and accessories

Being born into an artistic family Debbie Lawrence was shown a love of texture and color very early on. Her Mother was an interior and fashion designer, her Grandmother could knit, crochet and sew to perfection. Her Grandfather a self taught oil painter/artist. Even though Debbie’s family lived on a small budget they always made art from found treasures, going to yard sales was a weekly adventure.

This was the inspiration for Floradora. A family love for creative elements, fashion, and art.

One of my first jobs was working at fashion retail as a visual merchandiser. It would take sometimes 2 days to finish one store window!
After the novelty wore off I was led back into my true passion of “making.”

On a whim I started with vintage hats combining a collection of vintage elements, fabrics, hand dyed laces, crocheted pieces, buttons, fruits & flowers. What was once my hobby now blossomed into a business.

I loved experimenting with dyes and making up unique colorations, seeing how the dye would take on different types of straws, fabric and even flowers. Taking the straw and forming it into different shapes, even turning a hat into a handbag! but my favorite was combining all of the elements together to make a one of a kind "art to wear".

Floradora is an enchanting line of uniquely shaped, ornamented and hand blocked straw hats. All of which are created with an ever changing and diverse look ranging in theme from Vintage Romantic, to Retro-Sophisticate.
With themes including Garden Party Florals and Fruits to Macrame and Crochet...a personalized cottage industry of hand dyed, blocked, sewn, hats bags and accessories. Each piece is made from natural fibers with love and care and special attention to detail.
