Small brown women's hat. The hat is made of an unidentifiable scratchy brown material with an open weave. The hat is a beanie style. There is a wide band of the same brown material encircling the hat that has vertical, evenly spaced ribbing extending three-fourths of the way down the band. This band is folded up all the way around and attached to the sides of the crown. At the front of the hat, there is a strip of artificial leaves and berries running from the top of the band to the top of the crown. The leaves are made of brown and green velvet, while the berries are made from clay and painted purple and brown. The inside is crudely made with much visible hand stitching. There is stiff olive green sheer netting for the lining and a hat band around the bottom edge of a wide ribbon.
