A vintage looking cloche with a modern twist!  Rasberry, green, black, peach and rust, this hat has many different silks incorporated in the design, as well as a laser-cut 2-D flower on the side.  This is a Trish Raine kitchen sink – made from all sorts of silks that I’ve kept over the years.  Outside of the fabulous shape, worn deep on the head with a coy deep brim on one side, it can be dressed up or down, depending on where you wear it!

Description

This cloche is handmade felt.  Silk is fused with raw wool in a process of wet felting called nuno felting.  Once the fabric/felt hood is created, it is stiffened and blocked by hand over a metal vintage crown.  A wire reinforces the shape of the brim while an elastic inner band helps with the comfort of the hat and keeps it on your head.

This hat fits a larger head, 22.75-23.5″ wide.  If you have questions about fit, please contact me.

“The right hat may also enliven our imagination of the past….an old-fashioned cloche, a picture hat, or a toque trimmed with a pouf of polka-dotted veiling is just enough to make us feel as if we were living in another, romantic age.”  – author unknown
