All our hats are handmade to order so please allow 4 - 6 weeks for production. If this is an urgent order please get in touch and we will try to accommodate your deadline.

Delivery times after your piece has been lovingly hand-crafted are as follows:

UK Mainland: 2 to 3 working days

Unfortunately we are not able to offer weekend or bank holiday deliveries.

Please note bespoke pieces would take longer to complete. Please allow 6 - 8 weeks for production however the estimated time of completion will be discussed during your consultation.
