This leather and feather hat band or head band is made with unique leathers: brown fish (carp) leather and scroll embossed brown cowhide with a wash of antique gold for high contrast in texture and colors, and punched round holes (6 x 1/2" and 1 x 3\4") that frame the brown fish leather.
Coordinated thread is stitched to frame each hole & winds between the holes.
The leather is 11" brass grommet to grommet, and 1" at ends transitioning to 2 1/2" at the center. The feathers themselves are mostly 4" above the leather. These feathers can dance in the breeze and some gracefully bend back over the crown of a shorter hat or your head, or stand up proudly against a taller hat.
The feathers are all natural rust shades of furnace rooster, and glow in the light, as I tried to capture with all the photos at different angles and shading in natural light.
The feathers are sandwiched between the front cowhide and soft split suede cowhide lining, secured with glue and the of edge stitching and the stitching around the holes. And each feather trim is glued and stitched within ribbon (as purchased) so the feathers cannot fall out.
Cowhide thong ties are included, but these are easy to replace as needed for your fit or function.
The silver-grey silk top hat shown for reference is 24" circumference on the outer band as shown with the strap. Sorry, this hat is not for sale.
The band will be shipped in a large bubble wrap lined envelop with a firm card to keep the feathers from being bent or crushed in transit.
