Welcome to Thimblebee Millinery


Thimblebee Millinery is a venture from a milliner who has a passion for historic millinery and period clothing.  This is not only reflected in the designs but in the emphasis on quality and the detail of each hat.  With a background in historic interpretation and re-enactment our designer brings a wealth of knowledge to each design. 

All of our millinery creations are handmade and handsewn.  We have an online shop but also offer a bespoke service.  Do you need a specific hat to go with your period outfit?  Contact us and we will discuss your requirements with an aim to producing what you need.

We can provide both historic designs and contemporary couture, including vintage styles which are perfect for completing that outfit for Goodwood. It is also an important part of our philosophy that we use good quality materials which are ethically sourced. 


We hope you enjoy browsing this site and do contact us if you need assistance.
