Peachbloom felt with feather plumage

For almost 40 years, Lindsay Kennett was one of the main wholesalers of model hats to major department stores around the country and he also supplied fashion stores in smaller towns. In his Auckland workroom, sometimes with help but usually single-handedly, he produced two seasonal collections per store per year. Every design was different.
