Felt Happiness

Milliner Juliane Gorman creates wearable art hats that are useful, comfortable and flattering. Once upon a time, hats were worn because of custom. Now, you make your own traditions. You don’t need a wedding or a derby as an excuse to wear a hat. All of her handcrafted, felted hats are made in Gibsonia, Pennsylvania. Wear a vibrant, sculptural hat and tap into your inner beauty.

🍄 It's a mushroom beret! 🍄 The artist @felthappiness hand felts high quality magical hats of various styles, custom made to size. I feel like classic berets were begging to be transformed into mushrooms! 😹😹😹 Kevin jokingly said it reminds him of Toad from Super Mario Bros. I think très chic! #felthappiness
