M∞dy Hats

Untitled1Re-imagine the classic newsboy cap  freestyled by an indie designer into a modern hat for women. Shape is rounded to be fitted, a more contemporary design, and uses post-consumer fabrics making each hat a work of art. Comfortable and stylish, it’s a great hat to ensure confidence,  you’ll seize the day. Created from upcycled materials, many of the hats are made from recycling. For instance a pair of ladies trousers that may have become dated now enjoys  a second story as a street chic hat.

Also called Gatsby hats, Fisherman’s Cap, Pageboy, Applejack Hat, Cabbie or Newsy hats, they are popular today for women of independent spirits who thrive on being creatively productive.
