Silk Flower Making at The House Of Hats Studio

Behind the Scenes of the process of silk flower making at The House of Hats studio

Each flower is  delciatly hand tooled using heated brass flower tools to create the perfect lasting flower.

A little history behind silk flower making.

During the Middle Ages, nuns started to make artificial flowers from silk to decorate church statues with flowers during the winter, while relying on fresh flowers during the summer. It became a regulation by the church that silk or metal flowers were only to be used for decorating altars. Northern Italy in particular developed a whole industry for making flowers.

In the 19th Century, flowers were used more often in fashion: to decorate clothing, for hat trimmings and in artful hairstyles. The industry spread throughout the world. France, being the leading country for fashion, hosted the most important flower factories and flower artists (Monsieur Seguin, Monsieur Beaulard, T.J. Wenzel – the royal flower maker for queen Marie Antoinette).
