Or H’atelier as I like to call it.
I discovered this H’atelier on my last visit to beautiful (rainy) Florence. The atelier/shop is called Del Moro and they specialize in wonderful hand-made hats for both men and women.
They work with fabrics of all kinds, from felt to wool to straw and embellish them with silk ribbons, buttons, feathers and even long porcupine quills! (see image 3 below).
They make all types of hats for anyone who wants to add a touch of Italian flair and style to his/her look- from boho-style, to fedoras and panamas, to wide brim hats and basque berets. Take a look!

This was my purchase.
You must think…what’s wrong with her?!?!
So many gorgeous hats to choose from and she goes for this?
I know, I have a thing for hidden articles, those you usually have to dig for and are usually not even for sale.
I love my green vintage rose. It’s hand-made and oh-so-delicate. Not sure what I’ll do with it, but it’s definitely going on my head. I cannot wait for my next wedding invitation to flaunt my lovely, XXL rose

If you’re not in Italy, I just found this online shop that carries Del Moro hats!
