Venus is a handmade silk hat which came together inspired by the transition from night to day and with the Moon and Venus close together. I have spent many an hour laid in the cold desert sands of the Sahara dunes waiting for the dawn to break, it is a truly magical experience and this hat is my interpretation of that.
Totally unique, one of a kind pieces! This hat is part of my Precious Moments Collection. These wearable art pieces are made in part with recycled sari silk ribbons which gave me the idea for the collection name. Each ribbon was once part of sari that was made perhaps for a wedding or special occasion, perhaps everyday wear. Each sari holds memories, stories and history. Each one therefore holds precious moments within its woven threads.

***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 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.
