Bespoke Orders

Jane Walton Millinery specialises in bespoke hats and headwear individually designed for you and handmade to couture standards.


I thoroughly enjoy the process of meeting my lovely clients, getting to know a little about them, and designing the perfect hat for each individual.

It’s fantastic to work with clients who are accustomed hat wearers and those who relish the opportunity to dress up with headwear. And even more fantastic to meet clients who are going to an event where headwear is required and are unsure what to wear, and see how confident and happy they look when trying on their finished bespoke piece for the first time. My aim is to help you to look and feel the very best version of yourself for your event. 


I meet clients in my studio in a beautiful Grade II listed terrace in Far Headingley, Leeds, for a friendly free consultation. Consultations can also be by phone, Skype, messenger etc.

The consultation usually takes around an hour during which you have the opportunity to try on beautiful current handmade sample headpieces, and view alternative fabrics, colours, trims etc, whilst having a chat about your preferences and occasion. I will then design a piece with you, taking into account your personal style, personality, face shape and hair, and outfit and occasion if appropriate. The design may be based upon an existing piece or could be a completely new creation for your requirements.

Whether simple and stylish, or extravagant and striking, my talent is in making the perfect hat for you - and it must ALWAYS BE ELEGANT!



If you wish to place an order I take a deposit of a third of the final price.  We’ll make an appointment for you to collect your beautiful finished piece, or it can be delivered to you if required. (Occasionally there may be an intermediate appointment to check progress, finalise choice of trim)

Usual lead time is 4-6 weeks depending on availability of materials. I can often accommodate rush orders of 2 weeks(or less!) but this may incur a small additional cost at busy times.

There is no pressure or obligation at any time to place an order, and no additional cost incurred for special orders, custom or bespoke items.

Please message/email/phone for an appointment or if you have any questions.
