A Hat for All Seasons
A good hat should serve a two-fold investment of function and fashion. Our designers have fulfilled this brief admirably with their handmade beanies and sunhats in a wide range of designs, colours and sizes.
Soft and warm beanies in colourful crochet and cable knit keep your head warm throughout the cooler months. You’ll find trendy urban looks with relaxed, slouch style fits, cute and quirky beanies with ear flaps and accessories, or customise your own baby beanie in the size and colour of your choice in 100% Australian Pure New Wool.
If you’re in search of a handcrafted sunhat with a focus on protection and style, take a look at the range of bucket hats, wide brim styles, caps and visors in store. Contemporary prints, soft cottons, denim, reversible designs and many other techniques and textiles available in both adult’s and children’s sizes.
Head and Shoulders Above The Rest
Weddings, race days, garden parties, festivals, street, beach and resort wear – the hat as a fashion statement is as popular as ever.
Our artisans have turned their hands to all modes of headwear. Whether your taste runs to modern looks, or is more reminiscent of a bygone era, there’s a hat for every taste from fascinators and 1920’s inspired cloches to berets, Akubra styles, fedoras, bonnets and bowlers, and handmade felt hats.
Simple in structure or lovingly finished with an array of embellishments, accessories and edgings, all hats represent custom-designed, handcrafted elegance.
Headware for Hospitals & Rehabilitation
Sadly, many chemotherapy drugs cause hair loss, and while every woman wants to look and feel beautiful, it’s especially important when they are fighting the battle against cancer. For many women the loss of their hair is not just physical, but a psychological byproduct of their treatment. Our hat makers have taken up the challenge of creating comfortable headpieces, scarves and turbans that conceal hair loss and boost confidence. Chemo caps and hats are made from the softest materials, offer a great alternative to wigs, and make a loving gift.
Gone are the days when surgical / scrub hats and theatre caps were regulation issue green or blue. These days you’ll see doctors and nurses sporting colourful, patterned designs that bring an element of cheer to an often frightening, unpleasant and sad environment. The Handcrafted Shop stocks an array of bright medical hats crafted from 100% quality cotton and fully overlocked for extended wear and laundering. Choose from floral prints, super heroes, animals, cartoon characters and many other designs. Can’t choose a favourite? Our designers would be happy to peronsalise your own unique look.

Hats and hair accessories make ideal gifts. Little girls especially will be enchanted by the handcrafted headbands, hair elastics, top knots, combs, slides and clip sets. Floral embellishments are popular choices along with character themes featuring Wonder Woman, Frozen, Snow White and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles among others.
