Spring / Summer 2023


are a very popular aspect of my work so I have put together these galleries, a small selection of my previously crafted hats to help inspire your choices. I have produced hats for special occasions, for brides, grooms and their entourage, filmwork, photoshoots and hats used as business props but I delight in seeing my designs worn on a regular "can't be without it" basis. I agree wholeheartedly with my customers' comment that these hats just get better with age.

Tailor Made Ratty Tat Hats



When designing a bespoke hat I like to capture a little essence of the wearer in the creation, so give me some insight and let my imagination take flight and craft a Ratty Tat Hat especially for you. You are welcome to contact me to initiate your order for a Tailor Made hat and the bespoke order process is very straightforward.

Steampunk Creations


Steampunk is a Neo-Victorian style which includes science fiction and fantasy references. It conjures up thoughts of steampowered machinery, airships, pioneers and swashbuckling adventures whilst often embracing the romance of Victorian glamour.


There are many examples of Steampunk influences within films such as Alice in Wonderland, Around the World in 80 Days, Sherlock Holmes and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.
