Every hat I make has a tale and this one is no exception…
Phoenix tailfeathers are cut from ultrasuede or thin leather and laid freehand across the crown of this hat, held in place with metallic cord. The tips are padded embroidery inspired by the examples I saw at the “Peacock of the Desert” exhibit in 2018. The jewel accents are bezeled glass pieces sourced from India.
No two hats are identical and yours will not be exactly as shown here. The cuff is mink but fake fur can be substituted.
