Handmade One-Of-A-Kind Vintage Mid Century Linen + Canvas 'Botanical' Sun 'n Shade Hat


Nothing is so beautiful as Spring –
When weeds, in wheels, shoot long and lovely and lush;
Thrush’s eggs look little low heavens, and thrush
Through the echoing timber does so rinse and wring
The ear, it strikes like lightnings to hear him sing;
The glassy peartree leaves and blooms, they brush
The descending blue; that blue is all in a rush ...

excerpt from Spring by Gerard Manley Hopkins

inspired by nature, always...

the wonder, the colors, the freshness, the taste, oh the happiness of spring! blessed with rain, the spring comes alive with technicolor brilliance here in the pacific northwest, so much goodness one's heart sings with joy! the 'botanical' sun 'n shade hat, made of a gorgeous blooming vintage mid century linen is a visual ode to the magic of springtime and the anticipation of heading outdoors into the sunshine!

*hand wash only by gently dropping & soaking in a sink or tub using shampoo or mild bio-degradable detergent, rinsed & dried naturally in the sun.

**Please note that all of my goods are hand made using mostly recycled, vintage and/or new eco, sustainable, organic materials. I spend many many countless hours putting my focus, intention & love into each & every piece I design starting from hand picking the fabric, washing & drying, designing, drafting & cutting the pattern to sewing, stitching, ironing, hammering and finally hand embossing the logo. As with a lot of vintage or recycled materials, there are inherent markings that some may consider "flaws". I personally find that it's these beautiful little "scars" that give each piece it's own special character, imparting a uniqueness that I could not create with a perfect pristine brand new piece of fabric. I love the perfection of imperfection and I don't discard fabrics, leathers & any other materials due to these "scars". Please keep this perspective in mind if you are thinking of purchasing any of my goods.
