Calcarine - Deadstock straw - Black
This variant is currently sold out
The Calcarine model is a modern version or the classic boater.
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 a petersham ribbon.
The straw used for this hat is vintage/deadstock and was made in Italy circa 1960. I am not sure of the exact content in fiber, but believe it to be partly synthetic. The weaving on this straw is of medium width and let’s light shine through beautifully.
I have only made a few of these, and they are ready to ship.
12 inch diameter - 6 inches high from the base of the crown. Total height is about 9 inches
