Home Our Clientele


Millinery flower making is a timeless tradition.  M&S Schmalberg has perfected this art since 1916.  We are the last domestic American manufacturer of artificial fabric flowers for hat makers.  

M&S Schmalberg works together with milliners to create the most magnificent flowers to adorn hats and fascinators alike.  We have created custom florals using materials that range from exotic animal skins to velour hat bodies and even old vintage garments.  Schmalberg’s quality and service is second to none.  Our blooms can be seen everywhere from the Kentucky Derby to the Royal Ascot.  We have a large stock inventory as well as detailed custom capability.  M&S Schmalberg flowers are American made and can be shipped worldwide.

Milliners are known for their intense creativity and incredible skill.  We have created diy flower making kits so that these designers can combine our petals and their expertise to create their own flowers and designs.  

We feature a wide range of velvet and velour appliques as well as vintage millinery leaves.   Visit our Shop or Contact us for more information.  If you find yourself in New York please stop by and visit our showroom + factory.  It has been described as a “flower wonderland.”
