New Photos: 'Bergman' Ladies Hat

Over the next week or so we'll be releasing a number of new photos of some existing styles. First up is the 'Bergman'.

This ladies hat is made from velvety velour-finish fur felt in black, trimmed in vintage ribbon and an intricate cockade. It's like a small, feminine porkpie or fedora, and was made with authentic vintage hat blocks from the 1930s or 1940s; this style was popular with Hollywood starlets around that time. The shape is very like a hat worn by Ingrid Bergman in the classic movie 'Casablanca'.

It's an easy style to wear because the felt is soft and comfortable, but the hat is slightly mini and perches on the head a little bit, so you can still have a hairstyle that shows. It's held in place on the head by two thin elastics that hide under your hair in the back to secure it.

Shown here in basic black with black trim.

A popular color combination this spring has been this bright teal felt with apply green trim.

 And the last one is in a warm brandy brown with steel gray trim.

All of these color combinations are available for sale now in our Etsy shop.
