Symi is made from a deep orange guipure lace. Individual shapes are cut out from the lace, stiffened, then wire is hand stitched to them to create this stunning headpiece. Perfect for a wedding, the races or afternoon tea.
It is named after a Greek Island I went to on holiday many years ago. The buildings cascaded down the hillside to the harbour, with the pinks and terracottas of the render looking orange in the sun. It was a beautiful contrast to the blue of the sea.
The whole hat is handmade by me at my studio in rural Essex. The base is made from sinamay, then attached to a wire headband.
Symi is affixed to a wire headband. As it is double sided, it can be worn either way round, so sloping to either the left or the right, as you wish.
It has a maximum width of 30cm , and is 17cm from the headband at its highest point.
This can be made in other colours, please contact me to discuss and allow 4 weeks from order for delivery.
