Tiered Top Hat (hemp with olive)
I have used hemp straw from early one, over 20 years ago, and always have some hats from it. It has a very natural fiber feel that I like. A couple years ago I discovered a new weave of it was available, and it has led to some new designs as it is a narrow, more dense weave. I can do finer bends in the hats as I build it with narrower braid.
