Last year I have met the famous hat maker Peter De Vries. We arranged a meeting
in his workshop in Hamburg. I was excited by his hat variations. Especially his
patented and award-winning model THE SUSHEHAT has caught my eye. For this
hat Peter De Vries was honored with many awards – Design Plus of the Frankfurt
Trade Fair, Hessian State Award for German Arts & Crafts and the red dot design
award! After examining a copy of SUSHEHAT that can be worn in 9 different ways, I got the idea to embellish this model with my appliqués. Peter De Vries has agreed to this and that´s how a wonderful business cooperation has started.All my wool and fur felt hats are produced exclusively for my ANA N ANA collection in his workshop in Hamburg.
