Circle of Designers works with a wonderful linen mill in Europe who has the ability to produce high quality digitally printed cloth. We have had the pleasure of collaborating with the award winning Milliner Catherine Kelly. Catherine runs a couture millinery store called Embellish Atelier where you can find everything beautiful to do with hats. The space is dedicated to supplying and facilitating workshops for traditional hat making and other related crafts. Aprons are worn by the team with the fun ‘Mum of Many Hats’ slogan and illustrated by Meg Nicholson reflect Catherine’s shared experience of being a mother. Catherine promotes hats by attending and running many social and charitable events. Hattember is a fabulous event in conjunction with a competition that raises money for the John Skipper Kelly (JS) fund. Illustrations by Olivia Godbees.

The colours that sit together in this collection are neutrals and blues and greys. There is a whole range to choose from to lift your particular outfit.
