This green and purple straw cloche has a strong vintage vibe but it's modern at the same time and can be worn every day. The colors are so pretty - an eggplant purple top meets a soft sage green brim. The brim and band are a pretty coordinating sage green silk with a pale lavender silk band to tie the two colors together. It is embellished with a pale lavender and cream silk rose with three rose buds and a pouf of soft pink vintage veiling with dots. An inner grosgrain ribbon keeps the hat free of makeup and soil. Comfortably fits a 21 1/2 to 22 1/2 inch head size. One of a kind and completely made by hand.
I am happy to make a hat just for you according to your wishes. I send lots of photos and options during the process so that there are no surprises and you get just what you want. Please send me a message and we will work out the details. One caveat: I will not "copy" the work of another artists or maker.
"I honestly don’t think there is anyone that Paula can’t make look beautiful in a hat! It’s no wonder that so many of her customers have become her friend as we seek her out wherever she is showing."
"Paula is a creative and skilled milliner. Such quality is achieved with each handmade piece. Thank you for always making my wife feel special and beautiful in your hats!"
"Awesome customer service, fast shipping, beautiful hats and what a sweet, very professional lady to work with. I love all my beautiful hats and continue to order more. Trust me you will not be disappointed when doing business with her!"
I have been making hats since 2004. My hats have been showcased in the Kentucky Derby Museum in Louisville, Kentucky since 2010, when I received the Judges Choice Award. I am honored to have had a hat chosen for display at The Great Hat Exhibition in London in March, 2018. I have won Best of Show at the Greater Cleveland Gallery Fest and many gallery and show awards over the years.
