About Us

Now a team of five with two full time milliners, Fabhatrix is thriving creatively. Our chief milliner, and shop owner, Fawns first started making hats for Edinburgh Festival Fringe craft markets back in1983 and eventually opened Fabhatrix in 2002. Having lived in Edinburgh her whole life she has a strong interest in Scottish textile heritage and organic processes. Her Fabhatrix label hats are individually hand-made downstairs in her shop and the range is ever expanding. Her distinctive and contemporary style comes across in all her designs from day wear to catwalk. Fawns’ success and design ethos comes from an understanding that the design process is always evolving and finding new ways of recycling materials and developing existing designs.

Fabhatrix are very active and attend as many shows and events as we can. This gives us an opportunity to really push the boundaries and make some spectacular pieces which are showcased in the shop when they are not off traveling around the world. These are also great opportunities for networking with other hat lovers and milliners. Take a look at the What We've Done page to see some of the things we have been up to!
