Repair banner

Atelier Millinery provides an MOT service for headwear.  Bring in a well-loved hat and we can have it back on the owner’s head in no time at all. Below is an outline of repairs and refurbishments as well as a basic price list.

Please note the prices below may vary slightly depending on the job in hand. It usually take 7 days to complete a repair.  Hats can be returned by post at a cost of £10. If the job is urgent then please call the boutique for assistance.

Reshaping – Has your hat become shapeless over time, or worse, did someone sit on it!? Hats can usually be steamed and coaxed back into shape using traditional millinery techniques.

Repairs – If the hat has a rip in the felt or straw bring it in and the team will propose the best solutions to the problem.

Revamp – Atelier Millinery is full of supplies for re-trimming, from changing the decorative ribbon to a complete overhaul.
