Hidden in a place that you could easily walk past (if you don’t know what you’re looking for) is Ms. Ewa Tokarska’s hat workshop.
Ms. Ewa has been making beautiful hats for over 30 years. Orders for her one of a kind hats are often commissioned by Szczecin’s various theaters, including the Pleciuga theater and the Szczecin Opera.
All kinds of people, including classy ladies and gentlemen but also hipsters and fashionistas visit Ms. Ewa looking for the unique head cover that will set them apart from the rest of the beenies and caps on the street. Her works of art are more necessary in autumn and winter, but Ms. Ewa makes hats for all seasons.
I recently bought two hats from Ms. Ewa and I have had a few people ask me where I got them. Now the secret is out!
Ms. Ewa doesn’t speak English but she is very kind so I’m sure English speakers will find a way to communicate with her.
