Announcement   Welcome to WELLENKIND millinery,
Hats and unusual accessories made with millinery techniques are my passion.
Each of my pieces is unique and carefully handcrafted from quality materials -from the first sketch to the finished product- in my studio, in a smoke- and pet-free environment. You'll find no cheap plastic bits, nor hot glue guns here!

Apart from quality headpieces & hats you can browse:
unique bridal adornment ("wedding & bridal"),
other pretty things that are not to be worn on the head ("the Hatless")
accessories for men ("for the Gents"),
Steampunk gems ("Steampunk"),
vintage and 2nd hand goodies ("Vintage Treasure)

I've been working as a freelance milliner since 2007 and specialise in festive headpieces, gothic headgear and bridal hats.

ps: If you want a custom piece, don't hesitate to contact me.

About

"Some look at things that are, and ask why. I dream of things that never were and ask why not?" George B. Shaw

I love the feel of making something from scratch and that moment when you finally look at the finished hat and it's ready to go out into the world.
A Wellenkind piece is a unique, high quality hat, carefully handcrafted and it will last for a lifetime -like a good friend. Making contemporary headpieces means balancing between old techniques, knowledge of former generations, and modern design and new materials.
I love the range of materials my job enables me to work with. I could spent hours draping fabrics, cutting feathers, dyeing straw, stitching ribbons, selecting buttons or clock parts,...

So far I mostly make women's hats and men's accessories -but I'll keep an eye on the gentlemen's market... you never know!
People often ask me where I get my inspiration from. Truth is, I can't really tell. The ideas come and go however they please. But they never stop coming.

In 2005 I graduated from Vienna Fashion School. Unlike most of my colleages I was determined to keep working in millinery, or at least, in fashion. I was lucky to find a small shop in Vienna's creative district in 2010 -so I decided to set up my own hat shop, a huge step, an adventure, an experience I wouldn't want to miss.
In 2014 I opened a new chapter and moved my studio to my flat, which brought many changes and the possibility to develop my Etsy Shop properly.

Payment
*Payment must be received before I ship out an item

*I prefer PayPal as payment, but I also accept Visa or bank transfer

*Every hat is unique, so if one is sold, it's sold

*You have 24 hours (starting from when your payment arrives on my PayPal account) to cancel your order, should you wish to. After that timespan is over, I will ship out your item. If you're unsure whether you're purchasing the right item for you, or if you have any other questions about details -please get in touch, I'm sure I can help you :-)
Shipping
Please make sure that the delivery address you select at checkout is the one you like me to send the item to. I use the one Etsy provides.

Wondering about about my high shipping costs? Due to the (often fragile) nature of my hats, I unfortunately have to use quite large parcels to wrap them up securely.
Allow 1-3 business days until shipping (post offices are closed here on Sunday).

Orders within EU countries are shipped via Hermes Paketshop. I found them to be reliable, quick and they provide a tracking number.
Orders to all other countries are shipped using the Austrian Postal Service and with a tracking number, if possible.


NOTE: if the item you ordered contains materials (feathers, fur, plant parts,..) that could be a problem with customs of your country, please inquire beforehand! I don't take any responsibility if they hold it back at the border. Mostly it should be OK if its a finished product, but better be sure.

You will receive a confirmation message from me once your item has been shipped to let you know its on its way.


Refunds and Exchanges
I'll try and describe each hat as closely and in detail as possible. If you discover upon arrival that an item is NOT AT ALL like you imagined it would be, you have 7 WORK DAYS to return it (that means in the original condition and once again wrapped in the original packaging box) and I will refund 60% (via Paypal or Bank transfer) of the original price, once the item arrives at my doorstep.

Before sending anything back please contact me so that we can sort out further proceedings or maybe exchange it for another item.

NOTE: I do not offer refunds due to lost or damaged items or items withheld at customs!
Additional policies and FAQs
I’d very much like to know when and that the order has reached you and that you are satisfied with your Wellenkind creation.
 Just drop me a line, please.

Do I take CUSTOM ORDERS?
Only if you live in Austria or Germany.
