Regular price
Price is indicative based on fabric, detail and tailoring.

    The Orchid Boater is a sensational new piece of sustainable millinery for this season. A statement couture straw hat, made of Panama straw that has been hand woven in Ecuador. It is trimmed with structured silk bow and flower detail. It has a soft elasticated inner ribbon for a comfortable fit.

    Team with our beautiful Layla Jacket and Zelda Skirt in Cream Tweed to create the most sensational modern occasion wear look. Perfect for Royal Ascot and special summer weddings.

    Designed in collaboration with talented British milliner Ruth Merlin Ravenscroft, and trimmed by hand in her UK atelier.

    100% Panama straw

    Trim: 100% Silk 

    This hat is best stored carefully between wearing packed in tissue in its box.
    Pack this hat upside down with plenty of tissue paper underneath to support the brim.
    Avoid leaving it out in the sun when not worn as the straw will become brittle over time.
    This can be avoided by giving it a light mist of water occasionally and letting it dry thoroughly before re packing.
    Any straw left in the sun will either fade or become a deeper tone of gold over time.
    When this eventually happens it adds charm and character to a casual hat. 


    One Size Only

    The inner fitting is made of soft elasticated ribbon for a comfortable fit. The size is approximately 57cm and can be adjusted to fit your head size upon request. 

    Our straw supplier visits and works closely with the artisan weaving community.The straw bodies are woven at home or in community groups and then washed and treated. Most colours including this beautiful ivory are made using vegetal dyes and all water used in the process is disposed of under government environmental guidelines.
