Beaton straw hat - Removable ribbon in orange with brown ric-rac
The Beaton straw hat has a nice wide brim to offer maximum sun protection! If you are familiar with our previous Beaton hat, note that this one is slightly different.
This hat sits on top of your head (as opposed to a regular hat that would sit in the middle of your forehead) with the help of a millinery elastic that can be hidden within your hair (almost like a hairband or cocktail hat). It can also be worn tilted.
The ribbon is detachable with the aid of buttons. Simply loop them in and out of the button hole in the sweatband. These ribbons are comprised of grosgrain ribbon with a ric-rac trim sewn on each sides of the ribbon. The bottom edge is finished with raffia fringe.
The buttons used are vintage and were collected over many years by my great grandmother as well as my grandmother. The ones shown in the photo are for reference only, the ones you will receive will be a surprise!
A wire is hand sewn on the edge of the brim and then covered with braided raffia in order to keep the brim where it should be. This helps prevent the brim from sagging or becoming floppy over time.

Because all hats are made by hand, slight variations may occur from one hat to another, which makes them all the more unique.
