Twirl has a romantic, disheveled and boho feel about it. It would look great with a high necked, big cuffed, ruffled white blouse. You know the ones?  They look a bit Victorian. I would not wear this little hat with large earrings, but it would look gorgeous with a big modern statement necklace.

I love the tousled texture in this design. It gives the piece a very feminine and confident style. Perfect for a summer wedding, or out for cocktails with friends. 

This hat is handmade in London by me, Claire. I bought the woven raffia from a UK supplier, and then formed it over a teardrop shaped hat mould using a little bit of hat making know how. 

I used two faceted glossy black buttons to create a focal point of interest in the decoration. I bought them years ago in a little button boutique in Paris. 



★ woven raffia hat body ★ faceted glossy black buttons from a little independent boutique in Paris ★ swiss dot 100% cotton lining ★ internal wire edging ★ buckram interlining for hat sturdiness ★ size adjustable dark brown elastic ★ clear plastic comb ★  black millinery petersham (70% rayon, 30% viscose) ★ 



This piece comes in one size that fits all head sizes.

Twirl fits snugly on your head, but not around the circumference of your head (like a baseball cap would). This means it can fit all head sizes.

I have fitted the hat with a dark brown elastic. This elastic is designed to go around the back of your head, and sit behind your ears and at the nape of your neck. The elastic is adjustable, if you need it to be tighter then pull it further through the thread loop and tie another knot further down the elastic.

There is also a comb which is there to slide in from the back towards the front of your hair.

I have designed this hat to be worn on the right hand side of your head. Position the base forward over your hairline, it should sit a little above your eyebrow. I think it looks best worn towards the front of your head, but other people prefer it more in the middle! Play around and experiment to see where you like it best.



The Twirl teardrop base measures approximately 18 cm (side to side) x 15.5 cm (front to back) when holding a tape measure straight across the inside of the base. It weighs about 70 grams.



Currently I sell and ship to the UK only. This piece has free UK shipping! 

Your hat will be sent via Royal Mail Special Delivery, and you should receive your product within 1 - 3 days of placing your order. 

You will need to sign for your delivery, unless Royal Mail have changed this due to their Covid guidelines. You will receive an email from me with your tracking number as soon as I have taken it to the post office.

For more in depth information on my shipping policy click 'Delivery Info' at the bottom of every website page.

Your hat will be delivered in a sturdy white box which measures 35 cm x 24 cm x 17 cm (a bit bigger than a standard size shoe box). It is also a great box for storing your hat!  And please hang onto your packaging, as all returns need to be sent back in their original packaging.



Please try and stay out of the rain in this hat. It can cope with a light sprinkle but not a downpour. If you use an umbrella then that will be fine.

If your hat does get wet, then let it dry naturally at room temperature. Don't use a hairdryer or put it next to a radiator as the heat may warp the buckram interlining. Hold it very carefully and gently support the base on something like a rolled up jumper and leave it to dry without touching it. Generally this should take about 6 - 12 hours. If you have any problems then please do get in touch through the website contact page.

Your hat should need very minimal cleaning.  If it does need a light brush then very gently use a smooth clean cloth, or a soft clothes brush. Gently brush the totally dry raffia in one direction only, following around the shape of the hat (e.g. in a clockwise or anti-clockwise direction, around the shape).

Your hat only needs this if it is dusty.  Store it in the box and it will be fine.
