Traditional Millinery Techniques The making of hats, bonnets and other headwear for women and children was referred to as “millinery” and made by a milliner. The term “milliner” appeared in the 16th century and was derived from the name given to dealers of trimmings and accessories who came from or imported their goods from Milan, Italy (milener or milaner). Up to the mid 19th century, the products of a milliner weren’t restricted to just headwear. A milliner might also make or supply fichus, collars, cannezous, mantles, neck ties and other accessories along side caps, bonnets, hats, and turbans. The products of a milliner represented the labours of many specialists, such as flower makers, feather dyers, straw braid or bonnet makers, felt makers, ribbon and trimming makers, and even embroiderers as well as the manufacturers of lace, linen, cotton and silk goods.

However, some machine-sewn techniques are substituted for economy of time and money. Styles and trimmings are based on fashion drawings and actual examples of millinery housed in museums and private collections.
