Artist Sally Chinea has a love of traditional and heritage crafts and Millinery is a celebration of the endangered skill of the hat maker, in particular the transformation of straw from the field into hats. Her design was inspired by a recent trip to Luton to revisit the heart of the hat making industry in England, Luton’s Hat trails and museum collections.
