Merchant Marine Collection


The Merchant Marine collection is made from Florentine straw, raffia and fine Parasisal. Each one is trimmed with vintage patches, including merchant marine patches I  collected at markets in Germany and the U.S.  Each hat is unique and the dark blues, are hand dyed. The Florentine straws are from special suppliers in Italy and Germany.  They are indeed a rare species, and won't be around in a few more years.    See the collection in our Selfie Shoot (prices available upon request: ).
