Beaton - Black
The beaton hat is a great wide brimmed percher style hat.
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. **The last two photos are to demonstrate how the ribbons loop into the hat and for reference only.**
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 around the edge of the brim in order to keep the brim where it should be, which is then covered with grosgrain ribbon.
16 inch diameter - 2 inches high from the base of the crown
100% Felted rabbit hair
Because all hats are made by hand, slight variations may occur from one hat to another.
One size fits most. Our model Haji Ma's head measures 56.5cm for reference.
