Felt

/Felt

Handmade felt hats made by fusing merino wool and silk to create the pattern visible on the outside of the hat. A variety of styles, all warm and comfortable. These are all one-of-a-kind, as the silk is upcycled from thrift shop clothing. Good for you, and nature!

  • This hat harkens to the nature-lover.  The one who walks in the woods for well-being, balance and strength.  The woman who will notice the changes in the season, the color of the moss, the bark on the trees.  Subtle, warm, and exquisite, this hat will have you covered on your walks into the woods, as well as to work, or anywhere you go!  It will protect you from snow, fog, and light rain, keeping you warm throughout the fall/winter and spring.  A sensible choice for the woman who doesn't want all the attention focused on her, but still wants to stand out a little...in her Corner of Nature.
  • An icon in fashion, the bowler hat is now as suited to women as men.  This traditional shape has a crescent dipped into the crown and features a large-print feather felt fabric.  These feminizing choices add up to a sharp, clean aesthetic that will draw attention and compliments.  The leather hat band helps dress this hat up, while at the same time keeping the tone of the piece casual. "True style is not about having a closet full of expensive and beautiful things - it is instead about knowing when, where and how to utilize your collection."  -Nina Garcia
  • Harper's Bazaar says it best: "Though the beret has roots in Paris, you hardly need to book a flight to wear this French mainstay. Channel your inner Bonnie (minus the Clyde) and see how It girls, Insta influencers, and even Rihanna are perfecting the art of the beret". This beret is a very deep hat, dramatic in its silhouette.  Plenty of room for your hair!!!  It features a "kitchen sink" assortment of silks, included a swatch from a beaded silk blouse.  Rich colors, and bright blues, it is easy to don and goes with everything!
  • Carmen

    $210.00
    The resume of the woman who wears this hat reads as follows: Uniform is the classic black trench. Carries a briefcase to work, while wearing stilettos. Can disarm you verbally in mediation or court. This hat pairs perfectly with a classic black coat, red lips, and a fierce personality. Women who love espresso need apply.
  • CEO

    $200.00
    This hat is graphic, structured and sexy.  The silk fabric is white with a black veiling print, while black veiling is added to dress up this casual yet sophisticated style.  This hat is not for the faint-hearted.  It is for a self-assured woman who has determination, independence, style, and unrelenting ambition. "I read recently that there are more CEOs named John than there are women CEOs...I'm changing my name to John".  - working Mom quotes
  • For those of you who love turquoise, especially when feathered with a light purple, this hat is for you!  Contrasting silks on the outside and lining of this hat work together in that one-of-a-kind feel of handmade luxurious felt.  Casual, yet distinguished.  SO soft and comfortable. “Create your own style… let it be unique for yourself and yet identifiable for others.” ― Anna Wintour
  • This hat is casual in its design with a basic "slouch" style, but features gorgeous pink flowers throughout.  The silk has a garden of browns, taupes, pinks and greens, which is sure to lift your spirits every time you put it on!  Ridges in the back allow room for hair and a ponytail.  Put it on for your commute to work, a trip to the farmer's market, or out for a dinner date! Simple, sensible, and a head-turner.  A great "first hat" for you by Trish Raine.
  • The thing about felt making is that although you have a vision and you set up what you're making very carefully and skillfully, you never really know how it is going to turn out.  There is a "letting go" of control when feltmaking, and when you reveal what you've  made, I call it a "no whammies" reveal.  A little hope and a prayer each time.  ;) This hat turned out EXACTLY as I'd planned.  I couldn't have placed the print better, as the hood (felt shape) was destined for this vintage turban block.  The felt is light, thin and even, as you would expect with such a topper.  It exudes luxury and is for the woman who is a confident hat-wearer.  This hat WILL turn heads and say to the onlooker that you are a woman who is sure of yourself.  Casual and dressy, this hat can take you from the market to an evening out.
  • Flight

    $275.00
    This demi-chapeau sits almost as a beret would, with the long side sweeping down your right hairline.  The print is fresh, with purple patterns on turquoise.  Highlighted by a mount of lavender feathers it is reminiscent of a bird of paradise, oozing notes of spring, summer or the tropics.  With this hat you are ready to take flight! Sophisticated and head-turning, this hat is comfortable to wear and the handmade felt make it a one-of-a-kind piece.  To the races, a wedding, or a special occasion, this hat will set you and your outfit alight.
  • Sweet, casual, flirty, wistful, beautiful.  This hat can be pretty much anything you want it to be!  A crown with a side swoop mimicking the sweep of parted hair, the small brim with a pinch on the right giving you that feeling of a 20's flapper.  Floral prints of muted turquoise, yellow and gray, it will go with a bulky sweater, felt coat or sporty jacket. This hat is ready for you to take on the winter!
  • This gossamer is simply fun.  For that bright, shining light of a woman who has a smile that never ends, and a spirit that soars. "Style is the only thing you can’t buy. It’s not in a shopping bag, a label, or a price tag. It’s something reflected from our soul to the outside world—an emotion.”—Alber Elbaz
  • Francesca

    $185.00
    This hat features a delicate floral pattern unfurling across beautiful turquoise colored wool.  It hints at creativity, friendship, love and joy.  A pinch of good luck!  Pair it with your closest friends and mulled wine on a cold winter's night.  This hat also enjoys an apres-ski by candlelight! Let your intuition be your guide.
  • Francoise

    $230.00
    Fun, flirty, flowers!  This hat style is from the 1960's but styled in vintage 1940's fashion.  This bright turquoise hat is shaped on an asymmetrical block and worn on the side of the head, held in place with an elastic.  It is a piece which can be dressed up or down, depending on your occasion.  From a wedding, to the races, to a night out with friends.  A great piece to add to your wardrobe!
  • Genevieve

    $225.00
    This hat is made for a woman that appreciates classic style, clean lines, decisiveness and action.  Its styling brings to mind some of the famous female spies and intelligence workers of the first and second world wars such as Edith Cavell and Genevieve Feinstein.  This warm belted hat pairs stylishly with a timeless trench, but can be modernized with a basic sweater, jeans, and a classic handbag.  Whether you are undercover or out for coffee, this hat provides you warmth, substance, and style.
  • Organically textured, this hat has been hand-pleated and stitched into place. Reminiscent of a garden of perennials that create their own shape each year, pleasing to the eye, and so fresh!
  • "Everything but the Kitchen Sink" was what I told my mom ten years ago when I first developed this design.  I think we had started a whopping six hats already that day, and this was the last round!!!  So, with a glass of white wine, I could no longer think, so put ALL KINDS of silks together in one hat.  Mismatched, mis-textured...and...it worked!  It created a line I've been making since then I call the kitchen sink.  All colors and patterns and textures.  What ends up in the end is a hat you can wear with pretty much anything.  Most hats feature a great mix of colors.  The KS pattern also tends to make the hat more casual, or wearable. This deep cloche style is a fantastic "first" Trish Raine hat.  It can roll into your purse, and pulls down over your ears, so that if the wind/rain/fog/snow tries to get you, you can fight back in style!!!
  • Hester

    $190.00
    A modern take on a vintage turban.  This "kitchen sink" turban has a blend of many fabulous prints all fused into one hat.  One of a kind design, it is a casual head-turning topper for the hat-venturous!  While sensible (it will not crush your hair, will keep you warm in the winter/fall/spring, and will defend you against unfavorable weather), it has a wonderful flair and joie de vivre! A unique hat to match your unique personality!
  • This sweet gossamer hat is for the woman who likely has a wardrobe filled with a limited palette of colors.  She is particular, and loves order in her fashion and design.  She knows how to stand out and be admired, but not by screaming attention to herself.  Hers is a subtle beauty and style...
  • Julia

    $250.00
    This is a feminine take on the traditional men's bowler hat.  The felt reminds me of Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman, in her polka-dot dress at the Polo field.  The throwback feeling of the fabric dress used in this hat has me nostalgic for a simpler time and a delightful romcom movie.  While the silk material is fused with merino wool to make the hat, a simple strip of silk is used to highlight the hatband on this one-of-a-kind hat.  Simple covered buttons detail the side of the hat band in understated classic style.
