Joyful headpieces

  • Berry works closely with her customers
  • She likes to experiment creatively
  • She has a keen eye for form, colour and fitting

Berry Rutjes has been making statement hats for the last 30 years. When she was still only a fashion designer and tailor in training, she was clearing out a drawer when she found scraps of magazines that inspired her to construct three-dimensional hats. From that moment on, hats became her livelihood, after choosing to specialise in millinery. Berry’s hats are hand sculpted from linen, straw, cotton, and silk, vibrant splashes of colour adding a note of joie de vivre. With finesse and an undisputed maker’s eye for colour, form, and fit, her selection of headwear is elegant and stands out for its exuberant flourishes of feathers and foliage.


Do you want to learn how to make your own hat? All this got Berry thinking: would it not be fun if everyone was given the opportunity of learning how to make a hat? 
This is why she developed the Berry Rutjes Dutch Hat Academy – for beginners, advanced and Professionals – teaches you all professional tricks of the trade.

How do you determine your hat size?

Salon

If the hat fits, wear it.
There is nothing better than creating something with your own hands that makes someone else feel great!

There’s a hat for everyone, and anyone can wear a hat every day, at least that is what milliner Berry Rutjes believes. She creates hats both for special occasions and everyday wear, taking inspiration for her designs from nature, the visual arts, classic fashion houses, and the organic shapes of wooden hat blocks. ‘No outfit is complete without a hat!‘ Berry Rutjes’ hat salon, reminiscent of a small London or Paris boutique, is located on the chic Noordeinde in The Hague. Her attractive shop, full of designs in every shape and colour, makes it impossible to resist trying on a hat. ‘People often think they are not a ‘hat person,’ but that is simply not true. The trick is to know which hat suits you. A hat should not only compliment your face shape, but it should also match your character and personality. All you need is a little expert advice, which I love to give.’

Visit our salon at Noordeinde 182 in The Haque. We are open Wednesday to Friday 11:00 — 17:00 and Saturday 11:00 – 16:00
(The store is closed from July 30 till August 16)
