Torb & Reiner is the leading millinery supplier in Melbourne. Since 2000, we have offered an ever-expanding range of fine millinery straws, felts, trims and embellishments.
We are a market leader because we are constantly sourcing new and innovative materials. T&R former owner, Waltraud Reiner was one of the first milliners in Australia to use sinamay in the 1990s. More recently, she introduced contemporary straws such as jinsin, silk abaca and linen buntal (also known as tinalak). As millinery materials have been discovered, reinvented and evolved T&R is on the cutting edge with them.
Torb and Reiner are proud to host and facilitate workshops throughout the year. From workshops we teach in-house to guest tutors and our network of other teachers around Melbourne we are sure to be able to point you in the right direction to get your hat journey started or improve on the skills you already have.
Waltraud Reiner takes her classes across Australia in the Hatmobile. This gypsy-like van carries all the tools and supplies needed for learners in every corner of Australia to discover the joys of hat making.
Our in-house milliners are available for all your millinery needs. We offer a made-to-measure service, so look no further for your race day hats, costume headwear, bridal veils, or the perfect hat to complement an important designer outfit. Come in with your ideas, dress, fabric and creativity and lets make it happen. All our staff are milliners and can help you and point you in the right direction.
