This hat will be your best companion on your summer walks, on hot days and crisp evenings. It is made of a natural material – cattail, also known as bulrush. You will fall in love with its exceptional lightness, pretty honey-like colour, and neat weaves. It won’t be damaged by sun or rain and it always looks hip! Its natural look will match summer dresses and fashionable outfits. It’s also a must-have if you spend lots of time in the garden. It is definitely one of a kind, woven locally by Polish craftspeople. Basketry Master Helena cuts every leaf manually and then carefully weaves the hats.
The hat is available in two sizes, recommended for both men and women. There is also a version with an openwork randing. It’s easy to clean – just wash it gently with a wet cloth.
We can offer this hat to you thanks to our long-standing friendships formed during Serfenta’s basketry expeditions. By purchasing it, you support local Polish craft and Basketry Master Helena directly.
