Natural straw button hat with a large navy blue and ivory ribbon rosette. The straw sits over a layer of navy blue linen to enhance the open weave design of the straw. The rosettes are made with petersham ribbon and finished with a mother-of-pearl round button.
It is fully lined inside with the same navy linen as the inlay and trimmed with a co-ordinating navy blue petersham ribbon.
This hat is designed to be worn to the right of the head to show off the detailing to maximum effect.
This hat has been hand-blocked using traditional millinery techniques. This piece is almost entirely handsewn apart from a small amount of machine stitching on the lining.
