The vibrant weave of the beautiful patterned fabric was the inspiration for this Smoking Cap with an ethnic feel. This handmade hat has a distinctive tip of patchwork segments of dark charcoal and cream corduroy, enhanced with block square machine embroidery in red to compliment the crown. A deep patterned band in black, red, cream and gold adds an ethnic quality to the crown (pattern will vary depending on cut), highlighted by a band of charcoal cotton corduroy. The soft charcoal corduroy carries through to the inside of the hat to form part of the lining along with fine red cotton twill, for comfortable wear.
The tip is quilted using four layers, in the unique TwiLd Capit Hog style, combining polyester wadding and cotton, for comfort, structure and durability. The patterned and corduroy crown can be fully turned up or lowered to give a more nonchalant look. An unusual design of vintage button adds the final detail to the centre of the tip, for attaching the removable tassel. It's subtle cream and black tones along with its dome shape adds to the hats ethnic feel.
I make hats as unique as the people who wear them. This design, with its mix of fabric and trimmings, will be produced in a very limited number. This is because the main fabrics are remnant pieces. The fine tassel has been produced using red cord knotted in a macrame design. And the button is vintage and I have a limited number. Both the button and tassel add uniqueness to the hat with the combination of age and characterful imperfections.
An elegant cap based on the eastern looking lounge hat or fez of the 1860's/70's. The perfect gentleman's dress hat, wizard or magician's hat.
