Vincent Van Gogh traveled to Provence in Spring 1888 to escape winter and surround himself in the blooming of trees of the orchards.  There, he created many works focused on the blossoming almond trees.  Flowering trees were special to van Gogh – they represented awakening and hope.  132 years later we continue to appreciate his art.  This hat’s simple design is a canvas for Van Gogh’s exquisite work, featuring rich blue and brown tones and a richly stained leather hat band.
