***CARE OF YOUR HAT***
This is a fabric hat and should be kept dry. Excessive exposure to direct sunlight may damage the silk fibres over time. When not in use, it is best kept in its box unless you wish to use it as an ornamental piece.
All our products are ready to ship. As genuine craftswomen and artisans, all our items are lovingly handmade from start to finish, so no two hats will ever be exactly the same, ensuring you receive a unique piece of art! They are NOT covered cheap hat bases, but handmade using our own designed paper patterns, materials and techniques. Every hat pattern piece is cut out and put together by hand. All our hats have an open crown and fully lined irrelevant of size or shape.
We work in a smoke free environment.
Colours may differ to those you view on your devices.
***HOW TO WEAR YOUR HAT***
The smaller hats are held on the head by an elastic tape, which is worn around the back of the head to the nape of the neck and hidden beneath your hair (my preferred way). Also some have two hidden braid 'loops' to secure a head band (included one size) hair band and or a hat comb. Pins or grips (not included) are useful too. Hatinators are lightweight, easily positioned and secured at your most comfortable angle!
All our products are shipped in protective packaging. Our hats are presented in a purpose made hat box (and then wrapped in protective wrapping).
All orders are processed and dispatched within 24 hours. Orders placed at the weekend will be dispatched on Monday.
