Lizzie Lock Millinery (LLM) started from a desire to produce beautiful handcrafted and unique millinery pieces. After graduating from Nottingham Trent University and spending an invaluable year working as a designer-maker for Vivien Sheriff Millinery, Lizzie started LLM in 2010. LLM is a headwear design company that specialises in traditional millinery techniques to create beautiful classic shapes with an elegant, contemporary twist. Steaming and blocking using wooden blocks from as early as the 1920's and sourcing materials and embellishment from markets, vintage fairs and second hand stores gives each hat a vintage inspired, individual look.
The primary materials used for the hat bodies are felt and straw and this is carefully sourced from UK based companies and recycled wherever possible, giving each hat an ethical start in life.
