|Sun and Shower Hats|
Pictured here is their famous Sun and Shower Hat in green. This hat is made of breathable and water repellent fabric. They use the same water sealant used on tents to keep you dry and the lining is 100 % cotton for comfort and ventilation. So fashionable and fun to wear even when it isn't raining! Oh...and did I mention that the lining is always a colorful fun print and accents the color of the hat!

They are great for lots of different events and outdoor activities like sporting events, golf, gardening or just that dance ( ok walk ) in the rain!
Hat Trix is a small workshop assembling, sewing and trimming all kinds of fashionable hats. About a year ago we rented space and installed our sewing machines and work tables for our business in Bloomington, MN. We make fabulous hats and bridal millinery in our business, but it all started with carriage driving!
We started showing our horses in carriage pleasure driving classes more than 20 years ago. Hats were part of showing, but there were very few sources for anything other than beach hats and gardening hats. We wanted something more fashionable. The solution was making our own!
We looked at pictures in old books, magazines, and calenders; found inspiration in old moves ( especially from the 30's ). We learned how to steam hats to change their shape and how to sew on flowers, feathers, and other kinds of trim. We read books on millinery and eventually studied with working milliners.
We found out how we could "repurpose" vintage lace, furs, and costume jewelry. We were enjoying the process of making hats that got noticed!
