Description

About the speaker

For over 25 years here at Parkin, we have built up an unrivalled expertise in creating and sourcing fabrics & feathers. Working directly with weavers across the world we can say that family values are truly woven into the fabric of our business. That’s what makes us the UK’s No.1 choice for creative milliners & fashion designers.

About the talk

Take an insightful look at a truly green product, beautifully woven into a delicate and mesh-like rustic material – Sinamay. Sinamay is well-known in the millinery industry, due to its distinctive character having a multitude of uses. Learn about its traditional roots in the Philippines and how it became the modern day, premier millinery material. Meet the weavers, independent individuals or families working together to produce Sinamay fabrics and products. It's often the case that three generations work alongside each other, passing on more than 500 years of Sinamay know-how, hand to hand.
