Rivka's Story

Rivka has been a milliner for over ten years. She studied Couture Millinery at Kensington and Chelsea College before training as an apprentice for renowned milliner Edwina Ibbotson. She has since gone on to make hats for the singer Chaka Khan and for the television programme The X Factor.


Rivka opened her shop Rivka Jacobs Millinery in Exeter in 2016. In this time she has built up a loyal customer base across Devon and the South-West as well as sending hats and fascinators all over the world. Being located in Exeter has enabled Rivka to take inspiration for her hats from the beautiful Devon countryside.

Rivka now has a big collection of her hats in Frocks in Swing Time, 151-152 Fore St, Exeter, EX4 3AT. 

She now has a studio at her home in Exeter, and she clients for bespoke hats there.
