Simon and Mary is a heritage brand for a new generation. Launched in 2014 in Johannesburg by their family of milliners in the business since 1935, Simon and Mary honours the past but is inspired by the contemporary. Family is in the bones of their business. The factory in Johannesburg stands as it did half a century ago. New designs or classic shapes are made with the same trusted machinery from the ‘60s by experienced machinists whose own children have inherited their skills and now work and grow within the business decades on.
