FAQ

 

 

HOW DO WE CREATE OUR HATS, FASCINATORS AND HEADDRESSES?

All our headdresses are handcrafted using traditional millinery techniques, taking care of even the smallest details so as to ensure that our pieces are of the highest quality.

HOW CAN I BUY A HAT OR FASCINATOR?

All of the products on our website are made to order and can be pre ordered.  Please contact us regarding the lead time.

If our products online do not match your requirements, we also offer a bespoke service.  This enables you to design the model, colour and embellishments of your headdress which best suit your event, the season of the year, dress and accessories.  In order to do this, we will arrange a personal consultation to discuss all the details of your headpiece according to your taste and requirements.

The personal consultation can be in-person for those who reside in Madrid or via telephone or Skype for clients who reside in other locations.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO MAKE A BESPOKE HEADDRESS?

Due to the fact that all our products are handcrafted this will depend on the complexity of your chosen design.  We estimate that bespoke commissions can take 3-6 weeks, in addition to the delivery time.  For this reason we recommend you allow sufficient time when ordering bespoke pieces.  If for any reason, you should need your headdress sooner, please contact us and we will study the possibility of making it in a shorter period of time.
