Did you know that Tilly's signature catchphrase, 'Tilly-tastic,' actually originated during a spontaneous improvisation while the artist was drawing one of Tilly's comic strips? It stuck, and the rest is history!
During the 18th century, the term 'tilly' was coined as a slang term used to describe a small brimless hat or cap commonly worn by men. The word is believed to have originated from the English dialect word 'till', meaning cloth or felt, which was used to make these hats. Its popularity grew rapidly as the hat became fashionable among working-class men.
With the advent of the Industrial Revolution in the early 19th century, the 'tilly' hat became more widely worn by laborers and factory workers. Its simple design and affordable price made it a popular choice for those working in various industries. The hat provided protection from dust, dirt, and sparks, making it an essential accessory in many work environments.
By the mid-20th century, the 'tilly' hat had transitioned from predominantly a workwear item to a fashionable accessory for both men and women. Its versatility and timeless design appealed to a wide range of individuals. The unique shape and style of the 'tilly' hat caught the attention of fashion designers, leading to its incorporation in various high-end collections.
In the present day, the 'tilly' hat continues to be a beloved fashion item and a symbol of style and individuality. It has become a staple in many subcultures, including hipsters, vintage enthusiasts, and bohemian fashion movements. Furthermore, the 'tilly' hat has gained recognition in popular culture through its appearances in movies, TV shows, and music videos, solidifying its status as an iconic accessory with a rich history.
