"Sugar Loaf" Straw Wide Brim Sun Hat
A shape inspired by "The Lost Colony" play, about the first settlers in the new world, the Sugar Loaf hat was a popular hat in Elizabethan England. An early version of the Top Hat, it has a 6.5" crown and a three inch brim. It is made in our studio our of a hank of hand braided wheat straw, sewn together with our small collection of antique straw machines. It is finished with an edge wire, and a belting ribbon inside band.
