Visca Cone 1x1 Weave Hat Body
This cone hat body is made from visca which is a Japanese wood pulp. From afar it has the appearance of parasisal straw, has a gorgeous shine and costs a fraction of the price!
Floppy by nature, this checkerboard 1x1 weave visca can be blocked and stiffened just as you would with straw. For a more structured crown simply pop over buckram.
This cone has such a good sheen to it and is very likely to date from the 1970s/80s as we got it from a big vintage lot of hat bodies. It's such a treat and worth snapping up now whilst you can as visca, to our knowledge, is no longer produced.
Cones measurements (when flat): 28x37cm (11x14.5 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 hats.
