Vintage 1960's Seagrass & Raffia Checkerboard Straw Capeline Hat Body - 11"


This vintage straw capeline dates back to at least the 1960's and features a bold weave of  natural undyed seagrass and raffia straw that looks like a checkerboard from afar, and it's utterly stunning! This capeline has so much personality all it really needs is a bright ribbon around the crown and you got yourself a stunner. 

Capeline measures:
Flat measurement from crown tip to brim: 28cm (11 inches)
Brim width from side crown to brim edge: 9cm (3.5 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 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.
