Hat Cases
the Better Hat Box


Four durable Hat Cases to solve loads of problems.

Small (Traveler), Medium (Student), Large (Milliner), & X-Large (Professional)

A broken cardboard hat box string handle is miserable. A crushed hat because of a crushed box is devastating. A beautiful hat in a large paper or bin bag, because you don’t have a box large enough is risky. I have a solution.

I too needed something more durable and user friendly for my hats and I found a solution. Therefore I am introducing Hattin’ Around Hat Cases, the better hat box.

I have been using the same wonderful hat case for several years and decided it was time to share my secret. I have designed four sizes.
The Traveler which is small enough to fit in the overhead (of many airlines & trains). Diameter 13″ (33 cm) x Depth 7″ (18 cm)*
The Student which is a medium size, great for teachers also as it holds an moderately sized hat with extra space. Diameter 15″ (38 cm) x Depth 9″ (23 cm)*
The Milliner which is perfect for a large special event hat or head piece with dramatic feather trim, ie. Ladies Race Day or a special wedding hat. Diameter 20″ (51 cm) x Depth 12″ (30.5 cm)*
The Professional which is fabulous for anytime you need to transport or store loads of hats. Diameter 24″ (61 cm) x Depth 16″ (41 cm)*
*The dimensions are the inner dimension (ID). If my sizes doesn’t suit your needs, consider ordering a custom size.

    Do you need help deciding
    which one is best for you? 

    The Traveler – Small

    Dimensions: Diameter 13″ (33 cm) x Depth 7″ (18 cm)*
    Suitable for a fedora size hat. Fits many overhead compartments.

    This hat case works great if you have a smaller hat or hat project that you need to protect while on the go.
    I designed the dimensions of this case to fit in the overhead baggage compartment of most airlines. Caveat! Please check with your preferred airline as they are all different.

    The Student – Medium

    Dimensions: Diameter 15″ (38 cm) x Depth 9″ (23 cm)*
    Suitable for a mid size hat with space for feathers, flowers and small traveling sewing kit, or even a poupeè.

    For millinery teachers and students who need extra space and durability.
    I designed this case after a hat box that I acquired several years ago and have used it hundreds of times to carry my “in-progress” hats and headpieces to and from various hat classes both at college and with private instructors. In my opinion it is the perfect hat case. It is big enough to hold several hat parts as well as various odds and end of sinamay, extra felts, feathers, flowers and beads and my traveling sewing kit.

    The Milliner – Large

    Dimensions: Diameter 20″ (51 cm) x Depth 12″ (30.5 cm)*
    Suitable for a dramatic ladies race hat or special wedding.

    For milliners, ladies with a special event or hat enthusiast who have generous sized hat or dramatic feather trim.
    I designed this case for transporting a special event hat. It is deeper than large cardboard hat boxes. It fits the dimensions for airline check baggage**

    The Professional – Extra Large

    Dimensions: Diameter 24″ (61 cm) x Depth 16″ (41 cm)*
    Suitable for a massive hat or a collection of various size hats.

    For professional milliners, hatters, fashion stylists, or hat enthusiast who have a vast hat collection that needs to be stored or transported.
    I designed this case is for transporting several hats at once. Ideal for a photo shoot or fashion show. I have also used it for particularly large Royal Ascot style headwear. It is extraordinarily large, but it still fits through the door of my London home and the car door (if you have a very small car, it could be tricky).
