Description

Women’s brown straw hat. The hat has a shallow crown with a round top. There is a brim around the hat and at the back the brim is folded up and attached to the crown. The entire top of the hat is covered by a fine copper netting that has heavy threads of copper done is squiggles and curly cues around the brim. At the front of the hat there is a faux leaf attached where the brim meets the crown. The back of the brim is folded upward. On the back left the copper netting is gathered together and cut into a flower motif that has squiggle designs on it. On the underside there is a separate strip of woven brown straw that has a strip of brown twill sewn to the inside and lines the area where the brim meets the crown. The strip of straw widens as it goes toward the back of the hat and extends down past the edge of the brim.
