We are thrilled to announce that we have been listed as one of the top 20 British Milliners in 2017 by Make it British – an organisation dedicated to UK production and manufacturing.
Trade skills in the UK are lacking as the education and apprentice system fails to view manufacturing skills as important. As such, manufacturing jobs are becoming scarce. The Make it British movement aims to bring much-needed manufacturing work and skills back to the UK.
Millinery is very lucky to have a little resurgence of interest in the trade with a steady flow of skilled milliners working up the ranks. We are proud to offer our millinery workshops and creative mentoring services to help cultivate the new talent coming through to keep millinery alive.
To be listed as one of the top 20 British made milliners is a fantastic accolade. The full list of talented milliners can be seen here.
