Vintage Solid Crown Wicker Patterned Brim Sisal Straw Capeline - 13-14"


You would be really hard pressed to get quality like this anymore, these super fine sisal straw capelines are divine! With a solid crown and open wicker pattern brim, it's a great big sized capeline that will dye up gorgeously!

Dating to at least the early 1990's, these capelines were rescued from an old hat manufacturer. Pre-stiffened, these capelines will be a breeze to block!

Capeline measures:
Flat measurement from crown tip to brim: 33-35.5cm (13-14 inches)

Brim width from side crown to brim edge: 17cm (6.6 inches)

Condition Notes: 
Natural: Some foxing can be expected around very outer brim edge

*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.
