Millinery (hat making)

Hatmaking is the
manufacture of hats
and headwear.
Millinery is the
designing and
manufacture of hats. A
millinery shop is a store
that sells those goods.
A milliner designs,
makes, trims, or sells
Millinery is sold to
women, men and
children, though some
definitions limit the
term to women's hats.
[1] Historically, milliners,
typically female
shopkeepers, produced
or imported an
inventory of garments
for men, women, and
children, including hats,
shirts, cloaks, shifts,
caps, neckerchiefs, and
undergarments, and
sold these garments in
their millinery shop.
More recently, the term
milliner has evolved to
describe a person who
designs, makes, sells or
trims hats primarily for
a female clientele.
The origin of the term
is likely the Middle
English milener, an
inhabitant of Milan or
one who deals in items
from this Italian city[2]
known for its fashion
and clothing.
