About

Handling thread and needle since the age of 8, the Montreal based designer Samantha-Tara Mainville, always had a penchant for sewing. Specializing in fashion design at Lasalle College, and pattern design at Métier des Faubourgs, she discovers a true passion for hat making. She then goes on to pursue training in the art of millinery, from which ensues an internship with renowned Montreal based milliner Lucie Grégoire (who, among other designs, created the famous hat worn by Johnny Depp in The Secret Window).

With this experience to back her up, Samantha decides to launch her first hat collection, The Gray Matter. After 2 years of trial and error, unaccountable amounts of coffee drunk (or spilt on fabric), 156 sleepless nights, Heirloom sees the light of day in September, 2015
