Warms Heads = Happy Planet

Ever wonder what happens to all those clothes you donate to the thrift store?
According to a video that has been circulating Facebook lately, 85% of American textiles wind up in landfills.

Check out this compelling and information-packed TedX talk by Maxine Bédat on how you can take back the power of your wardrobe, and feel better in and better about your clothes (and hats).

As always, Bricolage Hats are made from old sweaters, helping landfills be a little lighter one hat at a time.


Fuzzy Flowers For Your Head!

After a year (plus) of making hats, my mom has finally decided what her favorite part is: flowers embellishments (though I think she also has a soft spot for finding that perfect sweater in the VV racks).  Here are some of her latest creations…and if you are interested in learning how she does it make sure to follow us on Instagram and Facebook as we are going to be rolling out some tutorials.

Hatty New Year (did you see what I did there?)

Some people spend their holidays drinking too much eggnog and watching Netflix. My mom does that too, only she does it while making hats!

Check out her new 2016 styles. Like snowflakes and hangovers, no two Bricolage hats are ever the same so check out our Etsy site if one is calling to you 🙂



Why should Indiana and Sinatra have all the fun?

Inspired by Vancouver’s rainy weather and my recent trip to Circle Craft Christmas Market, I decided to try my hand at making Fedoras.

Not only do they keep the rain off your face, but if you can pull the brim down to conceal your identity if you are planning to steal a magical ancient artifact or two.

This is only my first generation of hats so please feel free to let me know what you think!
