Plain and basket weave straw, ostrich feathers, silk lace, and cotton flowers and leaves
“This hat is particularly impressive as it features two different straw weaving techniques. The body of the hat is made of fine plain-weave straw, while the brim is lined with a coarser basket-weave straw. Delicate cotton flowers and silk lace embellish the crown, along with a massive ostrich plume.”
