Ellen Olenska (Natural & Black)

Ellen Olenska (Natural & Black)

All my hats are unique and one of a kind, but this is another level of exclusivity because it is a brand new style I added to my repretoire. The brim is around four inches. It is made from a fiber native to the Philippines called "buntal". The crown is a sewn hemp braid. It is a band of Swiss Raffia accented with goose feathers. Although it is a new style, I have been practicing the art of it and did not introduce it until it projected its potential that this style deserves.

  • Character

    Inspired by literary figure, Ellen, the main character in Edith Wharton's, The Age of Innocence. Ellen projects elegance and resourcefullness, just like this piece.
