The Don

The Don

Our first special occasion hat and an ode to one of the greatest. Earlier this year our Founder Tania Eves spent lockdown caring for her terminally ill Grandad, Don.

Inspired by the hats Don used to wear whilst courting Tania's Nana Pat, this beautiful wide brim fedora was designed by the two them just before Don passed.

It's been an honour to bring his vision to life for you to adore.
