I hand blocked a vintage Racello straw on a 1940s hat block. The straw has a wide weave and delicate satin finish. The color is taupe, like a blend of gold and silver.
The style is a mini cloche hat, very unique and pretty.
It's trimmed with a matching bow draped over the top. Monochromatic sophistication, one of my favorite looks . Wear it above one eye like a fascinator. It's a perfectly neutral hat.
Inside is a grosgrain headsize ribbon. It fits average size heads but can go a bit smaller or bigger. It anchors with an elastic band and has a matching hatpin.
