A classic black crochet straw wide brimmed hat in raffia straw. This black hat is made from black raffia straw that has been hand crocheted into a wide brimmed hat shape. Black Petersham ribbon circles the crown tied into a bow at the side. The hat is embellished with a large black silk flower that also sits at the side of the crown.
Raffia is an Eco friendly material made from segments of the leaves of palm trees. For information about Raffia material see https://stringharvest.com.au
This particular hat is delicate and incredibly light in weight. When you wear this hat you will not feel you are wearing anything. The hat is as light as a feather.
In this instance the Raffia material used creates a semi sheer hat base that allows filtered light to penetrate through. It has been styled with a round crown and a flattering wide brim. The extremity of the wide brim has been shaped to create a scallop edge.
This hat can be worn to any occasion and can also be worn inside or outside. The hat has been lightly water proofed. This will protect the longevity of the hat.
You can wear this hat to a wedding, any special event or to a garden party. Obviously this would be the perfect hat for the Derby Day races at Flemington during the Melbourne Cup Carnival.
The hat displayed is for a head size of small to medium. You can have the hat made to another head size head. There is an elastic for securing the hat. If required a comb could be added.
This hat can only be made in Black. However you can have it partly customised. Customisation may be with different trim or a different coloured silk flower. You can also customise the hat to sit on a headband. For any such customisation or other changes please contact us direct on firstname.lastname@example.org or +61416310028 to discuss.
