'Lulu', is a classic smaller sized 'coolie' hat.
Inspired by German cinema of the 1920s, and named after one of its most famous characters, (Lulu in Pandora's Box), this is a simple and easy to wear piece.
The crown is handmade in black sinamay, with a natural sinamay underside. The 'coolie' shape is mounted onto a hand blocked dome base, to help it to sit correctly on the head, and is wired to keep its shape.
The trimming is a trio of British magpie feathers, and an art deco rhinestone button.
This piece can be made in many other colours - contact us regarding having a custom piece made.
Please note: the button used on the sample in the picture is a vintage one from the 1930s - this is not repeatable. However, various other styles are available, both modern and vintage, and we can send pictures of currently available styles via e-mail, on request.
