I don't object to the girl making her own bonnet, if she does so honestly. (...) One who has little or no practice may be able to make a tolerable bonnet, but the touch which a milliner inscribes upon her handiwork is wanting.

Hatmaking

- Hatmaking or millinery is the design, manufacture, and sale of hats and head-ware. A person engaged in this trade is called a milliner or hatter.
- Millinery is sold to women, men, and children, though some definitions limit the term to women's hats.
- Historically, milliners, typically female shopkeepers, produced or imported an inventory of garments for men, women, and children, including hats, shirts, cloaks, shifts, caps, neckerchiefs, and undergarments, and sold these garments in their millinery shop.
- More recently, the term milliner has evolved to describe a person who designs, makes, sells or trims hats primarily for a female clientele.
- The origin of the term is probably the Middle English milliner, meaning an inhabitant of the city of Milan or one who deals in items from Milan, known for its fashion and clothing.

My grandmother was a milliner and lace maker which was used to trim hats.
As a boy I would sit in her back parlour listening to the clack of bobbins and the whirring of a singer sewing machine.
Luton was once the centre of Englands hat making industry.
Our football club is known as the “Hatters” and features a straw boater on its badge.
A Luton van is a type of delivery vehicle with a large cargo space for low weight cargos like hats in America known as Box trucks.
