We love hand blocking here at the House and we love free form blocking even more. See that little pleat, it is sculpted by hand. The pleat creates a sight line that is more flattering. It also forces you to wear the hat at an angle which always looks better. The shantung straw is a waxed Japanese paper that is both beautiful and durable. The tight weave provides excellent sun protection. We bound the brim on this one with a distressed leather and trimmed with charcoal grosgrain and hand painted feathers to look like butterfly wings.
Please note all hats are made to order and non-refundable. Hats ship in two weeks. Please feel free to email if you have questions or custom requests.
