What you'll do

We’ll meet in the gorgeous setting of the quintessentially French village of Vence. After introductions we will get acquainted with the beautiful 100% Merino wool which we’ll be using. Choose the colour you’ll be working with from a selection of 4 standard beret colours, and 2 extra colour options which vary according to the season. Together we’ll make a beret template with your own head measurements. Have fun finding our who’s really got the biggest head!! Then, using wool-felting techniques we’ll delicately make your Beret. You’ll love watching everything take shape. Waiting for the fibres in your beautiful hat to set and dry is the perfect opportunity to pause over a cup of tea of coffee (or a glass of Rosé in the Summer!) and get to know each other better. By the end of our experience together you’ll be able to take home your very own made-to-measure French Beret, made in France, by You!

I am a seamstress, born in London, now living and working in the south of France. My passion for styling and fashion started many years ago whilst searching for the perfect dress for a special occasion. I couldn’t find one I loved, so I made my own! Family and friends soon started placing their own orders, and my business grew from there. I decided to pack up and move to the style capital of the world, France! Since moving here I’ve gained vast experience in the fashion industry by working with the yachting and bridal-wear industries. Though I specialise in bridal-wear, my first love will always be classic, effortless French street style.
