Lilliput Hats is a traditional millinery founded in 1990 by designer Karyn Gingras. They sell ready-made, custom and couture hats to discerning ladies and gentlemen. Inspired by the classic, surrealist style of Elsa Schiaparelli, Karyn’s hats are modern, playful, and functional.

At Lilliput Hats, all the work is done in the store workshop. Using time-honoured techniques and the finest materials, Karyn and her skilled team of associates fashion a varied line of exquisite, handmade hats, as well as custom-designed creations for weddings, holidays, fashion events, television commercials, and films.

Lilliput Hats are collected and coveted by stylish men and women everywhere, including Rachel McAdams, Celine Dion, Whoopi Goldberg, Sandra Oh, and the former Governor General of Canada, Adrienne Clarkson.

One of Karyn’s most memorable projects was designing six hats that Gord Downie wore during the final Tragically Hip tour this past summer. The hats were inspired by Bob Dylan and were crafted to match Gord’s brightly coloured metallic suits. Felt colours, feathers, and trims were all hand-picked to pair with each of his looks. To Karyn, designing the hats for Gord was special and something she will never forget. “I felt like I was part of the Canadian musical history,” she said.

project_04

Natural Wool Knits’ Avi Selvig was born in a small village in Southern Greece. Her father was a shepherd as a young man, herding sheep through the shade of olive trees along the hills of the dry, rocky countryside. It was then that Avi’s love affair with wool began.

project_03

Avi’s blankets emote a rustic sense that is functional, yet with timeless style—proving to be a fabulous piece of décor for the home year round as well as a comforting wrap for chilly nights. She also makes pillows, soft bulky scarves, purses, vests, head bands, and wrist warmers as part of her product line. Avi gets her unspun wool as much as possible from local, Western Canadian sheep.
