Welcome to Handmade Crafts: GingerBread!

GingerBread - Coffee and Cream Hat GingerBread produces Craft Fashion hats and headwear for London, the UK and the world. Mixing traditional styles and fabrics with contemporary techniques and fashions, GingerBread offers something for everyone.

Our emphasis is always on the individual. Every item is hand made, and so every single item has its own individual identity. All our collection pieces can be custom designed to suit colour, fabric or feel (and custom designs are completely unique - never remade!). All collections are made on a limited edition basis, and always contain at least one one-off piece. Once it's gone, it's gone for good! We know people are unique, and believe everyone deserves their own piece of GingerBread that they don't have to share.....

Practical Plumes by Angela Searle GingerBread comes from the mind, hands and heart of designer-maker Angela Searle, a qualified milliner with experience from the University of Cumbria, London College of Fashion and Kensington and Chelsea College, amongst others. Her work has been exhibited in shows, galleries and stores alike, with a sneak peak of her forthcoming 2010-2011 collection currently being displayed at Fenwick's Department Store in London. Her current collection, "Level Headed" and previous works can be seen on www.GingerBreadHats.co.uk, and her 2010-2011 collection "Post:Modern" is available from August 2010.

How to find GingerBread

You can learn more about Angela Searle, GingerBread and their beautiful ranges via their website.

For me, the best hat award has to go to the fabulous "Perfect Circle (Satin Couture hat)" on Etsy - gorgeous creamy and muted silvery grey colours - very chic and ever so slightly bonkers!!

Just love the Kaleidoscope hat cos I could dress it up or wear it plain and casual, and because its denim, so easy to wear.
