This women's red and white straw summer medium brim hat is a sure bet for Kentucky Derby, church or any spring/summer event. The straw is an open weave red and white and the brim is shorter in the back and wider at the front and sides. The red is more of a terra-cotta red than a blue red, if that makes sense! The brim is turned back at an asymmetrical angle. It is completely hand blocked over vintage wooden hat blocks and then hand sewn. It has a low and shallow domed crown (top). It is adorned with a coordinating striped Ivory, black and terra/red ribbon with a self-loop, double ivory loop and topped with a black and orange/red textured vintage button. An inner grosgrain ribbon headband helps protect it from becoming soiled. It fits a 21 1/2 to 22 1/2 inch head.
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.
