Perfect hat by Sigrid Bannier
Price for the online vesion: 75$

Sigrid Bannier is the founder of Bannier Filz brand with the dream to make wearing handmade felted hats a lifestyle.

For more than 10 years she has been making one-of-a-kind hats combining hand felting and classic millinery techniques. She worked in close cooperation with Karin Zeisberger, a known German milliner from Bavaria.
Sigrid's special interest is also traditional folk hats; you can find examples on Sigrid's homepage

We feltmakers have a great possibility to design and create any type of felt with a given color combination, surface design and density - while other hat makers have to purchase industrial hat bodies. With millinery techniques, we can bring hand-felted hats to perfection, and Sigrid will share these techniques with you, from stiffening to blocking the hat and finish/decoration.
