Helen Kaminski made her first Provence Hat when she was a young Sydney mum in the 1980s. She bought raffia and made her first Provence hats for her children - inspired by those of painter Claude Monet. Helen Kaminski is now seen as "the most imitated hat designer in the world".

Helen  was one of the very first Australian designers to be sold on Rodeo Drive and Carnaby Street. In Japan her hats are as revered as a Louis Vuitton bag. Helen Kaminski is one of the few to be invited by Robert Redford to exhibit at Sundance Festival – as an 'apparel artist'.

It wasn't really Andie McDowell that Hugh Grant fell in love with in "Four Weddings and a Funeral" – it was her big floppy Helen Kaminski hat. Remember ?

The famous Provence hats are made in the world's two finest sources of ecologically sustainable raffia palm tree leaves – Madagascar and Sri Lanka. Unlike cheap straw, raffia allows for years of scrunching and re-shaping. The fibre's breathability allows for lots of comfort. The braided string tie at the base of the crown makes for genuine one-size-fits-all perfect fit
