Since opening our doors in 1916, M&S Schmalberg has worked hand in hand with Milliners and Hat Makers to bring their visions to life. We would like to give a huge thank you to Lauren Ritchie from Millinery.info for stopping by to talk fabric flowers, hat making and what it’s like to work in a family business. The interview delves in to some of the details of our unique history. It was such an honor to speak directly to the Millinery community as we pride ourselves on being the last domestic manufacturer of millinery flowers. All of our flowers are still have made in our New York City factory. We supply artificial flowers, trim and embellishments to Milliner’s worldwide.
