Vintage 50's/60's XL Petersham Ribbon & Laichow Straw Hat Base / Capeline - 14"


Oh boy! This vintage 1950's/60's piece is a stunner. Let's begin by saying it is absolutely huge, and will certainly get you noticed! Look a bit closer and you will get to see why this piece is really special - it's entirely made up from petersham ribbon and traditional laichow straw braid. The amount of materials and work to make up this hat body would have been absolutely tremendous!

It already has a thin sewn-in head ribbon, so is not purely a capeline as such but could easily be re-shaped in the crown if you wish to block it into another shape. You really needn't though as it sits gorgeously on the head, cascades down and kicks out in all the right places. It's so yummy you will want to keep it for yourself! 

Will comfortably fit a size 21-22" head.

We have limited quantities of this beauty available, so nab one now before we keep them all to ourselves!

Flat measurement from crown tip to brim: 35.5cm (14 inches)

It's mighty big size means we will have to fold up the sides for transit. To return it to it's shape just give it a gentle steam.
