Straw hats are made from a bundle of braided wheat, that is coiled, and sewn into hat bodies. We sew the hats to fit our own handmade hat blocks, (molds). The hat is finished with belting and wires, and trimmed with milliner made novelties. Felt hats are bodies that are shaped on our own blocks, then draped and shaped into the desired finished form. The hat is then finished with wire and belting, and trimmed with ribbons, and milliner made findings.
