Each material, from fabric to trimmings, is chosen with care to fulfil the client’s desires. Robin enjoys selecting quality materials for each bespoke hat she creates. Panama straws, hand-woven in Ecuador, are renowned for the standard of their fine weaves. Sinamay is available in a range of rich colours, and can be sculpted by hand. The velvet pile of fur felt has a luxurious feel. Robin often uses authentic vintage fabrics, antique brooches and hat pins to accessorise her creations.
