Michelle is a truly gifted milliner based in Birmingham. Working on a sewing machine came naturally to her and must have been in her blood, as her mother and grandmother were both talented seamstresses.
As Michele says “I’m in love with fashion, design and how it makes a person feel. Putting on quality accessories can lift one’s spirits” We whole heartedly agree with this and can see that Michelle’s baker boy caps will certainly do just that.

Based in Devon in a lovely old brushworks factory, Jaffe et FIls source and hand make all of their feather hat pins right here in the UK, ensuring that quality is paramount. They use handcrafting techniques and chemistry to create stunning effects. The feathers are sourced from UK farms who use high levels of animal husbandry. The poultry feathers used are ordinarily treated as waste products and therefore discarded. Throwing these away would really be a waste! We are so glad to have come across this craft business making vibrant and striking feather hat brooches that compliment many of our hats so spectacularly! Make your choice or see what we recommend.
