Last year I have met the famous hat maker Peter De Vries. We arranged a meeting in his workshop in Hamburg. I was excited by his hat variations. Especially his patented and award-winning model ,,THE SUSHE HAT,, has caught my eye. For this hat Peter De Vries was Honored with many awards – Design Plus of the Frankfurt Trade Fair, Hessian State Award for German Arts & Crafts and the red dot design award!

After examining a copy of SUSHE HAT that can be worn in 9 different ways, I got the idea to embellish this model with my appliqu├ęs.

Peter De Vries has agreed to this and that is how a wonderful business cooperation has started.

All my wool and fur felt hats are produced exclusively for my ANA N ANA collection in his workshop in Hamburg.
