Stylish Rain hats for everyday wear.
Wax cotton makes a great fabric for all year round use in Ireland or any country that has wind and rain. We believe we make the best possible Wax Cotton hats. We use high-quality heavyweight dry wax cotton, not the cheap oily stuff you find on some brands. Look out for our interlined styles which again set our hats apart. Giving the hat more body and shape than normal. Using our 25 years experience making hats we know what makes a great style. The image below shows our signature "Jess" style. A mix of colours with beautiful "Magee Irish Tweed" trim. No need to worry if the hat fits we make a great adjustable lining meaning one size will fit nearly all head sizes

Summer 2018 is now in store and online here at kathleen McAuliffe.
Whats new ? There are lots of new style and prints. Kingfisher is this lovely light navy and dark navy print. Shown here in the new work bag style bag. Lots of room for a laptop and all the paper work you could need. But it also works as a great handbag for day to day use.
Find this bag here.
Also new two new styles of baby changing bags. Great news here is there a lot less costly than in the past. Available in a "messenger Bag" style or in a bag very like the classic Midi bag.

Wax Cotton Rainhats
With over 25 years of hat making most of it in the west of Ireland which has to be the perfect place to develop rain hats! Our hats are all hand made in our workshop in Castlegregory in County Kerry. Quality is very important to us we only use the best heavyweight dry wax cotton. Most of our styles hats are interlined giving more body and shape than the average hat you will come across. The stock lining is adjustable light cotton. So one size fits all. For colder weather use polar fleece which gives a very warm and comfortable fit.
This style below is the Jess with Irish tweed. Availble is Navy, Black or Green tweed as in the image below. Click on the link to see our online store
