Fun, flirty, flowers!  This hat style is from the 1960’s but styled in vintage 1940’s fashion.  This bright turquoise hat is shaped on an asymmetrical block and worn on the side of the head, held in place with an elastic.  It is a piece which can be dressed up or down, depending on your occasion.  From a wedding, to the races, to a night out with friends.  A great piece to add to your wardrobe!

Description

This hat is handmade felt.  The silk is fused with raw wool in a process of wet felting called nuno felting.  Once the fabric is created, it is stiffened and blocked over a vintage wooden block to get the hat shape.  Wire reinforces the hat, as does the grosgrain headband.  A twisted elastic hides in your hair to allow you to position the hat as you wish on your head.

This hat fits all head sizes.  If you have questions about fit, please contact me.

“For me, style is essentially doing things well. If you want to be outrageous, be outrageous with style. If you want to be restrained, be restrained with style. One can’t specifically define style. It’s like the perfume to a flower. It’s a quality you can’t analyze.”

– Francoise Gilot
