The Two MadHatters began in 1996 with two girls from the bush of outback Queensland whose passion for colour, fabrics and style developed one of the first fabric hats for the harsh Australian climate.
With a need to look good but ever so practical at all kinds of events like cattle, sheep and horse sales or sporting events. Worn at picnics on the river, garden party’s, social gatherings the fabric hat has become essential.
Robin Strang and Kathy Moloney developed their own special style and fun as they become know around Qld and NSW field days as ‘The TwoMadhatters of Longreach”. The name came about with the help of slightly mad brother of Robin’s and a bottle or two of good red wine!!
They have evolved now with Kathy living near Roma and Robin’s sea change to Townsville.
The range of hats have grown to incorporate race hats and, fascinators learning the age old art of blocking. Working with sinamay, felt and straw and including beautiful fabrics, leathers, pearl bling and of course gorgeous feathers.
Although the original much loved fabric hats are still the mainstay the girls are always playing with ideas and have designed many more styles to their repertoire.
The girls run their own businesses but come together as The TwoMadhatters to attend field days and other functions.
Workshops in the making of fabric hats are also a fun way to get a group together, along with a favourite of Robins called Sad to Fabulous. This workshops is great for team building for a like minded group, girls night or to celebrate just being girls who need a creative outlet.
