When mother knows best

  • • Charlotte's designs emerge spontaneously during the making
  • • She experiments with traditional forms and diverse materials
  • • Her workshop is in her home village in the Moselle region

Luckily her mother was in need of a new hat otherwise Charlotte Kollmann might never have considered taking up her craft. “My mother made me aware of the craft of a milliner,” she says. “She was absolutely sure that this was exactly the right thing for me to do, but I was very sceptical.” However, it only took a three-day trial to change her mind. “From then on, I was fascinated and didn't want to do anything else.” That fascination has lasted ever since, and Charlotte's works have become synonymous with quality and timeless elegance. “In the end it is simple: be passionate about what you are doing or don't do it at all,” she explains with a wink.
