When artist and costume designer Maor Zabar was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease a few years back, he was forced to adjust his eating habits. Many of the delicious foods he was familiar with consuming were now off limits. So, to make up for the foods he couldn’t eat, he decided to make them wearable instead. Thus was born his special line of food inspired head wear: the Food Hat Collection.
Zabar is currently a teacher at the Shenkar’s College of Fashion in Israel. His inspiration not only comes from his own health but also his work as a theater set and costume designer. Every hat is made differently and some take significantly more time than others to create.
