Brushed felt, 3″ brim, tall crown, black leatherette band around crown and inner elastic tie all combine to make the Floppy Felted Women’s Hat, black a serious attractive and comfortable addition to your wardrobe. The color is rich and the hat is wide brimmed to ward off the elements. Perfect for a rainy afternoon or a cold clear winter night. And the black of this hat looks great under falling snow.
The origin of hats is, as with so many other things, lost to the mists of time. The earliest hat known to archaeologists and historians was found on the head of Ötzi, the Ice Man, who died approximately 5600 years ago, and it was hardly a new invention even then. Hats have been invented and reinvented for as long as people have needed to display status or protect themselves from the elements. The first people to wear hats probably weren’t even Homo sapiens – think about that!
Every time you don a cap or a cloche, a bonnet or a beret, a tuque or a turban, fedora or a fez, a kufi, or a kippah, or a keffiyah… You are engaging in an age-old display of fashion and culture that is universal across all of humanity.
