Uniquely designed, high quality hats
If you, ladies and gents, want to cut a dash in Mallorca this summer (or winter) then get a head start on everyone else by heading down to the best hat shop in Palma, Marat Atelier in the Lonja area of town. The headgear there is superb. Uniquely and imaginatively designed, finely crafted and with a large choice of styles for all seasons, you are sure to find something to suit that will make you stand out from the crowd.
Milliner in chief and head honcho at the shop is Marta Ortega who gives classic hats, caps and headgear an eclectic twist with an imaginative use of materials sourced from Mallorca and the rest of the world – beads, shells feathers, leather, as well as the straw and sisal from South America. They're all lovingly created in her workshop above the shop and she'll happily turn her hand to a completely individual creation just for you for a special occasion.
For many people accessorising an outfit with a hat is something they only do whilst on holiday, so why not make that hat a real head turner by buying one from Marat? They're not cheap, but they're good! I can't wait to add another to my vast collection very, very soon.
Marat Atelier can be found at Carrer de Vallseca 9, right opposite the Almudaina Palace, tel 971 725 088 and if you visit, please tell Marta you heard about the shop on Mallorca Spotlight, and remember - if you want to get ahead, get a hat! (and make mine a Pork Pie please)
