Many years ago, in a lush, old-growth rainforest, a big bear was foraging for delicious berries when she came across a wandering wolf. In that silent, prescient moment, they recognized in each other their creative counterparts and joined together to manifest their artistic visions.

From that time forward they have been co-creating art that engages and inspires. Drawing from their shared passions for nature, wisdom, and the wonders of human imagination, they are delighted to share these pieces with you.

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.
