Vintage 1970's Patterned Twisted Toyo Capeline - 11"
*We are down to our last of these vintage (circa 1990's) capelines. All will have slight defects and foxing in one place or the other, hence the amazing price!*
This gorgeous patterned capeline is made from twisted toyo paper, is surprisingly robust and can be stiffened with straw stiffener or a PVA solution. Dating to the 1970's, it can be easily dyed and would make for a stunning summer hat.
Flat measurement from crown tip to brim: 27.9cm (11 inches)
Brim width from side crown to brim edge: 10.5cm (4.1 inches)
*Please note that this is not a finished hat but the 'body' to make one from scratch.*
Petershams Guide to hat bodies:
Cone: This is the perfect size for most fascinators and for blocking out hat crowns.
Flares: This is the size in between a cone and a capeline, so good for hats with smaller brims or larger fascinators.
Capelines: This is the largest hat body, great for wide brimmed fitted hats.
