This hat is created with 5mm very delicate straw plait (braid). Few straw hats are done with this most delicate of straw braids as there are so few of this size being created. The brim is a kind of floating bring that is attached on the crown facing upwards one, and on the other side slanting downward as most hats do. It create a very flirtation look to the hat and give it some great drama. It is inspired from the Art Deco movement of the 1930s and has its own interesting geometry and texture. The floating band of leaves that emanates from the cap and around the crown give it a very interesting look. For those of you who have never seen straw hats made out of very delicate 5mm straw plait, you will find this hat more like fabric than straw. I hope this hat gives you the drama that you are seeking for that special event.
