A hatpin is a decorative pin for
holding a hat to the head, usually by the hair. In Western culture,
a hatpin is almost solely a female item and is often worn in
a pair. They are typically around 20cm in length, with the pinhead
being the most decorated part.
The hatpin was invented to hold wimples and veils in place,
and was hand-made. In Britain, demand eventually outgrew the
number that could be supplied by hand-making, and they began
to be imported from France. In 1832, a American machine was
invented to manufacture the pins, and they became much more
affordable. In Britain, they rose to popularity towards the
end of the Victorian era, and continue to be a popular accessory.
Hatpins are also collectible items, and
there is an American Hatpin Society for collectors
