This Cloche Hat is in the tradition of the classic 1920’s and 1930’s French cloche that was so popular at that time. It is a style and shape of hat that is enjoying an incredible revival due to its popularity on television in various Period dramas such as Downton Abbey . Cloche in French means ‘bell’ shaped.This hat sits neatly down over the ears and is super warm and cosy. Why wear a casual knitted beannie when you would be warmer and certainly more elegant in a fashionable Cloche Hat.
