Vintage 1960's Strip Straw & Twisted Jute Braid Capeline Hat Body - 12"

Vintage straw capelines are a treasure to behold - mainly because many of them were so labor intensive to make that they quite simply will never be made again. This is one of those!

Made from natural undyed open weave stripe straw and twisted jute braid, this capeline dates back to at the least the 1960s and has a nice big brim so you can make the summer hat of all summer hats! They all have their own personality, some are more closely woven, some have more colour variation. A true sign that each one is unique and ultimately handmade.

Capeline measures:
Flat measurement from crown tip to brim: 30.4cm (12 inches)
Brim width from side crown to brim edge: 11cm (4.3 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.
