Patterned Wicker Stripe Ramie Sisal Straw Capeline Hat Body - 13"


You would be really hard pressed to get quality like this anymore, these super fine ramie sisal straw capelines are divine! Made from super fine straw, they have a striped pattern that features alternate stripes of mesh wicker and diamond patterns. 

Dating to at least the early 1990's, these capelines were rescued from an old hat manufacturer. The majority of these capelines have been pre-stiffened but the odd one or two are naturally floppy. 

Capeline measures:
Flat measurement from crown tip to brim: 33cm (13 inches)

Brim width from side crown to brim edge: 14cm (5.5 inches)

Condition Notes: 
Natural: Some foxing can be expected around very outer brim edge
Black: Frayed at edges up to 1 inch deep in places

*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 inbetween 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.
