Hat facts and history:
- Apostle Paul decreed that women needed to cover their heads while attending church. The Catholic Church dropped this decree in 1967. During the Middle Ages it was deemed inappropriate for a woman to be bareheaded in public. Most women observed this until the 1960s.
· Today technically a hatmaker makes hats for men while a milliner makes hats for women.
- Feather workshops are called plumassiers. THis is where they make boas and dyed feathers for hats.
