Cosette (Natural & Red)
This piece has a wide 11 mm hemp braid, and a band from a Swiss Rafia braid. There is tubing sewn in the edge to help retain the brim shape. It is my take on a classic "Breton" brim silhouette. The brim extends out five inches.
Inspired by literary figure, Cosette, from Victor Hugo's novel, Les Miserables. The hat's style hails historically from the Breton area of the north of France. Fittingly, Hugo hailed from France.
