CLEMENTINA



- a unique hat creation in vibrant shades of orange silk abaca. This exotic piece will 'top' any special occasion outfit.

The headpiece is based on an orange sinamay pillbox held securely in place on the head by hat elastic. It is fully lined in black silk and has a black petersham band on the inner edge of the pillbox.

Silk Abaca is a beautiful fabric made from the finest fibres of abaca (part of the banana palm family native to the Philippines) woven across with fine silk. This piece is hand dyed from Australia. The material requires no stiffening, drapes and twists well forming beautiful curved 'corm' like shapes. This piece has three shades of orange - wrapped around the pillbox is a bright orange and on the top the larger shape in mandarin/gold sits with a smaller 'corm' shape in bronze/orange. A spray of black goose biot feathers spring forward providing contrast in their spikes and movement.
