We have loved offering Freya Oatway's gorgeous hats for years. She marries her thoughtful design and skill in British millinery to produce chic and utterly wearable headware. This everyday winter essential, Alvin Beanie, is knitted in richly textured 100% wool and is soft to touch, breathable and durable.
The Italian and Irish yarns, knitted in a 200 year old family run factory in Scotland, along with a hand-stitched detail on each one, makes this casual piece special.
All FAO Millinery beanies are unisex.
FAO Millinery uses only natural materials and fibers and believes that, in their qualities of durability, breathability and softness, they are the ultimate luxury. They understand the importance of preserving our environment and sustainability and therefore the art and skill of craftsmanship that promotes a more caring, slower pace of life.
Traveling from America, more often than not, means arriving in places much older than our hometowns. Lands where original techniques were invented and have been used for centuries. Places where natural beauty and its resources are the design inspiration. The excitement for us is to discover a maker who has mastered the old techniques and pushes its evolution into the current world of fashion.
Everywhere we go, we seek out exquisite pieces. Works of the highest standards that are created, not manufactured. We have been fortunate to meet artists and designers who have shown us how sincerely they put their hearts and souls into what they do. These are the makers who make things the way they were originally meant to be made - to endure.
The pieces in the Lesetta Collection are carefully selected. The investment in these works is not only financial, but also emotional. We source items that can complete an outfit and elevate a mood. Things you won’t see on everyone as you walk down the street.
My career began in the African safari business many years ago, a venture that led ultimately to my exploring similar operations in Argentina. That experience, combined a few years later with living in Italy, led me to knowing that exploring the world would be a priority for me. Over the years, I have treasured most the artisanal pieces I have purchased during my travels, exceptional items that weave high fashion and fine craftsmanship. To find these uniquely beautiful things, then, has become my obsession.
