Straw Hats

Straw hats were originally designed to protect the wearer from the ravages of the elements.  Straw was widely available and low in cost.  For your viewing enjoyment, here is a parade of vintage 1940's era straw hats from my personal collection.  As always, click on any photo to enlarge.

Although I prefer to work with Ultrasuede or wool felt when making hats for dolls, I did this straw hat a few years back for the 11.5" size diva.  OOAK ensemble from The Couture Touch.
