Laminae Silk Hats
Each hat is individually designed and created.
Loose silk fiber is hand-
The hat has a hand sewn sweat band stitched into the crown. Most brims have a wire stitched to it to add stability and a bias tape is hand sewn over it.
The hatband is hand made. Most are hand braided using perle cotton thread although other techniques can be used such as glass Czech beads strung and hand knotted.
The luster of silk makes an elegant hat. Each hat is a uniquely sculpted piece of art. Designed for the women who appreciates high fashion.
