AWARD MILLINERY DESIGN
I made this Malibu chic hat in my millinery studio in the Hollywood Hills.
I haven't used panama straw before, but these master weavers have produced beautiful and expensive hand woven work.
The finest panama straw is handwoven in Equator not Panama. There are different grades and this is the finest. The color is a beautiful light taupe, which is a wonderful neutral. It takes me several days to dye, dry, steam, block, shape size and trim a hat. This hat would look lovely with a summer dress, or with jeans and a white linen shirt it's very Malibu chic. Wear it to the horse races, polo, a regatta, touring wine country, walking on the beach or Sunday brunch. The slim leather band slips off if you want to put a dressier sash there for other outfits.
Measure 1/4" above your ears and around where a hat would rest snugly and I'll custom make this hat for you. Custom made hats are not returnable.
My hats have been featured in British Vogue, British Brides and Victoria magazines, Weddings Magazine, Hatlines, VoyageLA and been commissioned by Disney Studios and worn at the Royal Weddings, Ascot, Buckingham Palace Garden Parties, Kentucky Derby & Melbourne Cup.
USPS, UPS & FedX have raised their shipping fees for large boxes with wide brim hats. I'm very sorry but there's nothing I can do about this. However, my prices are wholesale to the public, as fine shops purchase my hats and double the price to their customers. So this will help to off-set the new higher shipping fees.
Some countries may charge a customs duty, which I have no control over.
