Lizzy is an elegant silk hat in jade green and Bordeaux silk dupion with silver accents. A hand dyed piece of arashi shibori silk habotai in similar colours was used for the band and to cover the leaves. A centrepiece was created from all the elements with a filigree leaf detail and beaded flower. Jade and bordeaux feathers were added and the brim was edged with a matching braid. This fully lined fitted hat is suitable for a race day, ladies’ day at the races, the perfect accessory for a wedding outfit or any occasion that calls for an elegant timeless headpiece. She was named Lizzy as I was told she is fit for a queen.
Totally unique, one of a kind pieces.

***CARE OF YOUR HAT***
This is a silk 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.
