Wren & Rye was created by Laura Haithcock after her love of costuming and design sparked her interest in millinery. The tradition, skill and time that are involved in millinery have kept her dedicated to learning and creating.  

Laura resides in Seattle, WA, where hats are often a requirement for surviving the drizzly weather. In addition to creating for Wren & Rye, she is also a full-time advertising Producer and Brand Manager, is a frequent guest host on a local podcast and baker.
