Ombre Dyed Vacation Hat/Purple

If you've a passion for purple, this is YOUR perfect vacation hat!! I have hand dyed this light as air Japanese toyo (tightly twisted paper, then hand woven) in an ombre effect, from lavender at the crown, to deep purple at the outer brim. It has been hand blocked on a vintage wooden hat block, and an improvised brim block, to create its' shape. The edge of the brim is wired for a crisp edge. I have finished the brims edge with a bias cut, silk dupioni piping, and the same silk as the hatband, with trailing scarf tails. I have created the decorative focal point with hand sculpted ribbon flowers in organza, and two frayed silk dupioni rose buds. The green dupioni leaves are machine stitched, sculpted and hand colored for a richer effect. Finally, finished with pink and lavender ostrich fronds to catch the sea breezes. A coating of acrylic helps it to resist moisture, but I would not recommend getting caught in a downpour with it! This hat stays securely on the head with a discreet millinery elastic worn under the back of the head. This will be your go-to hat this summer, and is guaranteed to turn heads!!
NOTE: At the moment this is a custom order only piece, and can be made in your head size.  
Please include your head measurement, plus one finger under the tape for comfort.
