About Cloche Call Designs
Welcome to Cloche Call Designs, a woman owned small business in Oakland, California.
I bought my first cloche back in the 1980's from a street vendor in San Francisco. Over the years I have bought many others but had often wondered if I could make my own cloches. Finally, in 2017, I took a two day class on hat blocking and fell in love with the process.
I was already an experienced seamstress, but I took to hat making like it was what I was always meant to do. Soon after I realized I wanted to start designing hats for other people. And so here I am less than a year later creating hats for you!
My shop is small, it's just me making each hat by hand, using just a few hat blocks and my imagination.
For starters it is just ladies cloche style hats. But as I evolve I hope to add in other materials and even maybe try my hand at men's hats someday.
So take a look and spread the word! I may be small right now but who knows where I will end up.
