Mad Hat Company offering alternative Mother’s Day Gifts in Dorset.

Run by local mum Susie of three children, Mad Hat Company is based in Dorset.

Susie has been a life-long lover of wearing hats and went to the Arts University Bournemouth to learn how to become a milliner.  Clearly with a passion for this craft, Susie states that she will never ever stop learning new techniques or working with new materials.  “Fashion, style and design are such fluid entities that milliners like me can just ride the create wave indefinitely.”


“Be yourself, everyone else is taken.”

As Oscar Wilde pointed out;


Despite being a regular subscriber to “Vogue”, Susie approached millinery from an artistic direction as opposed to following a path from the fashion industry.  Millinery and Susie go together like a hat on a head.  It satisfies her creative itch as she is able to draw in her varied and eclectic artistic skills from pyrography to paper-cutting and silver clay making.

The aim and ethos of her company is to help make you feel a little bit more amazing by finding and wearing the right hat for you.   Susie wants you to feel confident and happy in the skin you’re in and we know that with the right hat you will too.  So the next time you are popping to an event and need a hat – why not contact Susie.  More examples of her work can be found on her website click here.
