We were started in 1997 by Jane Cave who had worked and trained with world renowned milliner Graham Smith at his atelier in central London. The discipline and inspiration she drew through working in a couture workroom gave the perfect foundation to start her own business.  Jane found the ideal setting in the beautiful village of Otford, Kent, with a shop that also incorporates the workshop on-site.

Jane and her team make each bespoke hat by hand, using traditional millinery techniques to create a flawless finish. Our attention to detail, whether it’s a large picture hat or a tiny fascinator, means that each headpiece is hand~blocked and stitched, and made specifically to each client’s specifications.

The aim at Mille Fleurs is to make the perfect headpiece to suit each client, taking into account personality, outfit choice and venue. Having a hat created and made especially for you, ensures you not only look good but feel fabulous.

If you wish to use our bespoke service just call us for an appointment on 01959 525501. Prices range from between £180 to £500.

We are based in the Kent village of Otford, near Sevenoaks, close to the M25 with free parking and a direct train link to London Victoria.
