Matti's Millinery & Costumers (MMC) was founded in March of 2006 to provide vintage reproduction attire for the theater and reenacters alike. Sisters, Matti & Hannah Burkhardsmeier, created the company as an outlet for fine historical costume production and design. Matti overseas the overall design of the various costumes and accessories of MMC. All head wear are original designs from Matti's imagination and historical knowledge. Hannah supervises graphic design as well as being the main administrator of MMC. All the handcrafted jewelry is designed by Hannah. Both Hannah & Matti have been seamstresses for many years.

Here's what our customers say:
"Matti's Millinery & Costumes is fabulous. As the director of theatre for M-State I have called on Matti's Millinery & Costumes on countless occasions. Every time they have created some of the most beautiful and durable costumes I own. They are fast, reliable, creative and not afraid to make decisions on their own. They bring wonderful ideas to the table and their knowledge of fabrics, historical costumes and what will read well on stage has been invaluable to me. I feel fortunate to have such a wonderful resource so close at hand."
