3 generations of making hats

My grandfather Andrzej started making hats just after the I WW.

When my dad, Adam, turned 17, he learnt the trade from him and started his own hat-making business. This was 43 years ago. He has been sewing hats ever since I remember. One of my best childhood memories are going to a village market at 5 am with my dad and watch him sell hats for kids and adults all day long (he would always get me a small gift for my "help" with the sales!). Those were magic village and little town markets in the 1980's in communist Poland, back then.

In 2013, when my son Joshua was born, I used the time I had at maternity leave to help my dad with the sale of his beautiful and unique hats. That's when the brand name was created and I opened the Etsy shop. Now back at work full time, I still enjoy working with my dad, so I use my evening and weekend time to manage the online sales.

My sister Kasia helps us with the social media promo and my husband Simon helps with the record keeping. My mum always cycles to the post office to ship the orders on time! My son Joshua is our number one model - you will see him in many pictures.

This truly is now a family business and I'm proud to be part of it!

Thank you for visiting Made by Adam etsy shop!
All hats for children are handmade by my dad Adam, who has been making hats since he was 17. He is based in Poland and I'm based in the UK so his one-man band is now a little bit International!

Please note that I cannot accept liability for incorrect sizing. I strongly advise to measure the head prior to purchase and contact me if you are not entirely sure what size to order. It is always better to take a hat size bigger if you are not certain.

I do not offer refunds for personalized and custom orders.
I accept PayPal payment.
I expect buyers to make payment within 2 days of ordering. Please let me know if it takes you longer to complete the payment, otherwise I will cancel the sale. The item will be shipped only after the payment is received.
