Noggins

Noggins, the creative team of Charlene and Judy, is determined to keep Canadian heads warm and fashionable.

Charlene's hats are all crocheted by her, by hand, each one completely unique and off the hook. She prefers working with natural fibers, wools, alpaca, soy, and her favourite, bamboo (oh so soft). Judy's hats are all sewn by her. She makes her hats out of recycled clothing, and found fabrics, scouring thrift stores for castaways. She drafts her own patterns for most, but her freeform hats are true pieces of art, using the natural lines and finishes to produce designs that are completely unexpected.
