1940's French Scultped Toque/Terra Cotta
A faithful reproduction of a beautiful, French sculpted toque, is revisited in this very soft, and luxurious wool felt, in a rich shade of terra cotta. I have handblocked this sophisticated, chic little toque, from an authentic hand carved 1940's French hat block, that just arrived from Germany!! Oh, the stories it could tell!!! It is really a bit of a hybrid, combining elements of the nonchalant classic beret, with a foreshadowing of the coming decades' pillbox. The deeply sculpted grooves are inherent in the hat block, and are handstitched to hold their shape. Fully lined in a a rustic plaid flannel, this hat is super warm even on the coldest days!! The focal point is finished with a vintage 1940's, mother of pearl button, a dash of Russian veiling, and a spray of hackle feathers, set upon my own handmade wool houndstooth, faux feather. 
An authentic homage to a fabulous chapeau, that you will want to wear every day!!
