This item is handmade to order
The vibrant tapestry of the Victorian carpet bag was the inspiration for this characterful Smoking Cap. Handmade in shades of brown with a natural fibre band, of blue with an orange tick, adding detail and an ethnic feel to the crown.
The tip is quilted using four layers, in the unique TwiLd Capit Hog style, combining polyester wadding and cotton, for comfort, structure and durability. Frosted brown seed beads are hand beaded to the tip of the fine wool/ silk fabric, creating a smoky illusion on this hippie boho style pillbox hat.
From the distinctive vintage button, with complimenting coloured stripes, hangs a removable tassel. The tassel is crafted using recycled vintage curtain ties and braid in an Aztec design. Both the button and tassel add uniqueness to the hat with the combination of age and characterful imperfections. Satin and soft corduroy line the inside of the hand finished cap. The crown can be fully turned up or lowered for a more nonchalant look.
This elegant Victorian style cap is based on the eastern looking gentlemans lounge hat of the 1860's/70's.
