Distressed straw hat.
A shabby, intentionally aged Western-style hat with a pleated porkpie crown. Features a tall crown and a wide brim.
♦ CONTENT and CONSTRUCTION:
Hand-blocked on wooden hat blocks with a vented paper toyo straw.
Wide brim curves up slightly at the sides. The brim is wired to hold its shape. Decorated with a pleated silk band in green, tan and white and a bleached peacock feather.
After shaping, the hat and feather were hand-painted with acrylic paints to look dirty and worn. The silk band has been intentionally frayed at a few points to add to the distressed look. Rest assured — this hat is clean and brand new!
Unlined and with a dark green grosgrain headsize ribbon and Silverhill Creative Millinery label.
Best fits a head size of 22.5″ (average women’s head size).
