Derby Day Brim Hat is a classic brim shape using a unique material. The end result is a sumptuous and beautiful brim hat perfect for so many events and occasions.
In this case Wendy has used a hand woven Japanese paper known as Toyo straw. Toyo straw is a type of shiny smooth straw made in Japan with varnished rice paper. The material is commonly used for straw hats and fedoras. A hat made in this material is incredibly light weight. With the varnish and added water proofing by Wendy this is a very robust hat that will last for years to come.
The paper straw has been patterned in a beautiful crisscross of black and white. A really lovely pattern.
The brim here has a rounded crown and a slightly flared brim. This creates a very flattering look. The head fitting is a medium so it will fit most head sizes. The brim is finished with a black satin ribbon around the crown.
Whilst the hat is super light it will sit securely on your head. To be absolutely sure there is an elastic that will wrap under your hair for extra security.
A perfect hat for so many occasions. For a casual summer time outdoor event. Or dress up for the races with this gorgeous brim, perfect for Derby Day. Or at a wedding as a guest. A brim like this is so versatile. It will last you for many years to come. No wardrobe is complete without a gorgeous brim like this.
Derby Day Brim Hat is 100% hand made by Wendy in her Melbourne based studio.
