Hobbits Vintage Creations
Bespoke handmade vintage headwear, veils & accessories by Alison Moore
Shropshire-based Hobbits Vintage Creations specialises in bespoke or read-to-wear handmade, authentically styled vintage headwear, veils and other accessories.
'Vintage’ means many different things to many different people and Hobbits is all about classic design inspiration combined with repurposed original materials, to create a new heirloom piece that connects the past with the present in a whole new story. "Each era possesses its own key design features which are the aspects that make creating so exciting," explains Alison Moore, Hobbit's creator. "Whether that's a 40's birdcage veiled percher; a glamorous 1920’s feathered side detail or a 1930’s pearl head band (favoured by Kate Middleton)." Each hand-crafted flower, pearl detail and lace trim are sourced from original items and roughly 95% of materials used by Alison are authentic; either from local suppliers, charity/vintage shops or donations from ‘clear-outs’. The green credentials even stretch to recycled boxes and tissue, and sometimes even the silks Alison uses to sew with. "Here at Hobbits we try to endorse the circular economy and as there are so many amazing materials already in existence. Zero single use is just how things roll at the Hobbits studio!"
