We had the good fortune of connecting with Brooklyn McIntosh and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Brooklyn, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I felt like there was a niche in the hat making business for women specifically to be able to creat art they could wear on their head. There wasn’t many women if any creating and designing felt hats for other women. You either had to buy something off the shelf, buy something from a man and try to get your feminine ideas off to him clearly or you wore something old that your grandma wore. I wanted to be the woman that other woman came to when they had a vision of a fun unique hat, or when they wanted a fun unique hat but didn’t know how to make it happen creatively. Hence the Proverbs 31 Line with Warbonnet Hat Works began.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
So I get the unique opportunity to bring a twist on a felt hat. I get to create one of a kind works of art you can wear and be proud to pass down from generation to generation.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
We love taking visitors to the Stockyards and also to West 7th street. So many great places to eat and lots of neat history about the western way of life in the stockyards oh and great shopping too.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
To all the other women makers out there, working hard to create quality, unique work that they can be proud to support their family by.
