The Lake District’s Designer Milliner

The Lake District’s Designer Milliner

Welcome to my new updated shop and website. I am the Lake District’s designer milliner, a fully qualified couture bespoke milliner, using traditional millinery techniques to create beautiful hats and fascinators to match your requirements exactly.The Lake District's Designer Milliner - Tracy Wells

Situated on the outskirts of the beautiful Lake District, in the festival town of Ulverston, I have a small shop where I meet people by appointment and then create the pieces in my workshop  above.

For appointments call 0789 578 0200 or email info@thehatbox.net

If your in the Lake District in need of a milliner to create something special for an event coming up, please get in touch. If however you live further afield, and there is nothing on my pages to match your outfit, it can be done through Whats-app sending photos, swatches etc.  I enjoy a challenge!

Every hat I make is unique. I never make two hats the same and don’t believe you should pay for a couture piece, to turn up at a wedding or race meeting to see the same piece just in a different colour.  So you can relax knowing there won’t be two out there!

If you want to feel special it has to be a one off!

Designer millinery means just that! It is designed for you. Being in the Lakes just makes it a happy and beautiful place to work, being in a festival town makes life fun! If I’m happy then my work is great!

So if you want something a bit more interesting than you can find on the High Street, take a look and if you can’t find anything here, then get in touch!

I am quite accessible and  flexible with opening times, happy to meet on Sundays or out of normal working hours! Call 0789 578 0200 or e-mail for an appointment info@thehatbox.net

Why not time your visit to the beautiful Lake District or take a look on Choose Ulverston website to tie your visit to one of the many festivals in the town!

I am a couture milliner based in the lovely market town of Ulverston on the outskirts of the Lake District. I design and make hats and fascinators using traditional millinery techniques. All of my hats are handmade with careful attention to detail. The skills I use take time, they are not, and cannot, be created… Read More
