Black White Percher Hat is made with vintage Japanese silk Wendy used from an Obi. (An Obi is actually the waist belt several metres long that wraps around the waist of a Kimono). The silk material is a pattern of black and silver white. Predominantly white Roosters feathers sit elegantly on one end of the crown. A couple of black Rooster feathers add a lovely contrast.
The hat block used was custom made to Wendy’s own design. She calls this shape “Rachel”. It is a unique shape that creates a beautiful Percher style hat. A Percher is designed to “sit” on your head.
Black White Percher Hat would be perfect for so many different events. Needless to say it would be an absolute winner for Derby Day races during the Melbourne Cup Carnival. Certainly it would be a fun cocktail style hat for the evening.
The hat is designed to fit down the right side of your head with the feathers to the back on the left side.
A comb is attached on the inside to neatly and securely fit into your hair. For those with short hair or simply wanting further security an elastic can be added.
One size fits all. As this is a percher style hat it will fit any size head. Simply adjust it to the position that best suits your head shape.
100% Australian made by Wendy in her Melbourne studio.
