This site carries no advertising, and will not, I hope, have to.
The Miyuki Designs site is disabled, although it can be accessed for educational purposes. The samples shown there are not available at this time.
But we need to raise revenue to be able to continue, and so here is an invitation to make a donation of $300 minimum and as a token of our appreciation, my wife Miyuki will personally make a lady’s hat, designed exclusively for you by her.
Send us the required head measurement at eye-level in inches, or centimetres, to my email address, or P.O. Box 3869, Hollywood, California 90078. Or you can phone and leave a message at 800/390-5913, and we’ll get back to you.
For gentlemen with a gift in mind who cannot get close enough to measure the lady’s head, small, medium, or large would do as well. It takes nearly a day to make these things by hand, but $300 is approximately the cost of one hour of an average attorney’s time.
Here’s what’s available right now:
Hats have names, and the above is called CONSTANCE. It is made from Japanese vintage kimono obi (sash) silk, with a cotton lining.
Below are cap styles:
This is JEANNE, a newsboy cap style. Made from blue denim and appliqued with vintage Japanese kimono silk. The lining is cotton.
Here we have VICTORIA, a hunting style cap made from vintage Japanese kimono obi (sash) silk, and with a cotton lining.
This beautiful example named DIANA is what you see, featuring vintage kimono silk with a cotton lining.
