Proppa Toppa are experts in the design and creation of high quality hats of all shapes and sizes.


Proppa Toppa was established in 1997 by Clare Butterton after graduating as a Fashion Designer and Milliner and working under famous London fashion houses.

Proppa toppa has won many design awards and exhibits at many leading shows such as Country Living, Hampton Court Flower Show and supplies shops nationally and internationally. Proppa Toppa has also been included in publications such as The Lady.

The business is based in the rural county of Shropshire in England. Clare takes inspiration from her surroundings of both living and working in Shropshire, lots of pretty feminine silk flowers, greenery, and natural fabrics. This and using good cutting and a good eye makes Proppa Toppa what it is today!!

Proppa toppa has grown form strength to strength and is now a leading name in headwear, and famous for our linen packable washable sunhats for summer and our jewel coloured packable waterproof hats brighten up any rainy day!!

Most of our hats come with an elastic adjuster inside so one size fits all and you adjust it to your head size.

I hope you enjoy our website and if you do have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us as we always have our computer or telephone to hand whilst sewing and decorating away!!

A modern day "House of Elliot" some might say!!

You don’t just have a hat with us, you have a "Proppa Toppa" which is guaranteed uncompromising in design and quality!!
