The beauty of the cloche is a simple sophistication found in a well-crafted silhouette.  Iconic as a hat from the 1920’s it was worn low over the eyebrows making women walk with their chins up and eyes cast down. This resultant stance only added to the allure of the look, as women felt it created an air of confidence and independence in the wearer.

This is a modern take on the classic cloche.  Leopard print felt with a vintage velvet band and bow, hand-cut and shaped flowers in silk and leather on both sides of the hat.  The silk used to make the hat is fused to the leather to create the flowers.

Description

This hat is made “from scratch” by fusing upcycled silk  and merino wool by hand in a process called nuno (wet) felting.  Once the felt is formed, the hat is stiffened and shaped over a vintage 1920’s block.  It features a deep crown, and a slightly angled brim.  There is a elasticated band on the inside of the hat to hold it in place on your head.  The velvet band and the small flowers with swarovski crystals adorn the end of the brim. This hat has tremendous depth which allows you to pull it right down over your eyebrow, or leave it higher at the back of your head, whatever way you wish to style it.

Fits a large-sized head, 23.25-24.00″ in size.  If you have questions about fit, please let me know.
