Shop for Ready to Wear Hats

Ratty Tat Hats offer quirky styles that allow them to top off either a casual or occasion outfit. Delight in the whimsical, float upon the heady mix of romance and floral bouquets, escape to the world of dusty laboratories, time machines, pioneers and spies or delve into the murky darkness of gambling, circus and burlesque. Whatever design you choose, be prepared to enjoy wearing it.



Individually named, each unique design is crafted from a new, handmade 100% heavy wool hat embellished with an eclectic mix of curiosities and vintage pieces including clock and watch parts, natural feathers, gorgeous fabrics and my distinctive hatpins. They have an heirloom quality, are finished with the Ratty Tat Hats' inner crown branding, satin lining and each one is presented in its own hatbox.

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.
