|Heather Daveno of Lao Hats|
I am a self taught, American born textile artist who has been making hats from recycled textiles for over 20 years. Please visit my shop for both custom made and 'off the rack' handmade hats.
Artist's statement: Inspired by art forms from a variety of cultures and time periods, my hats are handcrafted from recycled textiles and found objects. Lao Hats are limited editions, unique, warm and wearable artworks for your head!
Lao, the Chinese word for Old, is a play on words and a reference to the recycled / reclaimed / repurposed nature of my work.
I am in the process of rebranding and I am looking for a new name. Please see my Facebook page or website for details...
