Salem-Inspired XL Ruche Witch Hat
Please read full description before purchasing
This hat is inspired by Salem, Massachusetts and the Witch Trials. The hat is adorned with a small embroidery of the famous Witch House and has wheat embroidered on the underside of the brim. Ergot poisoning from moldy wheat is believed to be one of the culprits behind the hallucinations and hysteria. The hat also has a leather hat band so it can be fitted more and is adorned with feathers and real dried wheat and lavender. It doesn't only look amazing but it smells good too!
The crown is wired and has a ruche detail for added flair. It also means you can bend it in any shape you want and have it stay!
The suede fabric and light cotton liner keep the hat comfortable to wear for long periods of time out strolling among the trees and wildlife in the forests. Be prepared for the wonderful compliments you will receive at your next get together in the woodlands, attending Bilbo Baggin's birthday party, your first day at Hogwarts, or a nice jaunt around the Renaissance Festival. Remember the dried goods are rather fragile so keep that in mind for your adventuring.
I can add a sizing band to the hat (for an additional fee) for those with a smaller cranium or for the little wizard or witch. Please consider a custom order for those with a larger cranium to accommodate all of those brains.
This is a hat for the discernible witch or wizard, of any age.
The brim is wired so it will hold it's shape, whatever you decide that is.
Please note that the color might vary a little due to fabric availability and dye batch. There is a black cotton liner that is also on the underside of the brim.
*Please note: The hat is considered "Extra Large" compared to the size of the normal hats, meaning the brim is wider and the crown is taller. It does not have anything to do with the actually sizing of the hat.
One size fits most up to 24" skull. Please consider a custom order for those with a larger cranium to accommodate all of those brains.
*To measure the size of your head, place a flexible measuring tape around your head just above your ears. If you don't have a sewing measuring tape, use a string and then measure the length afterward. You want your hat to be a little larger than the circumference of your head so that it will not be too tight.
I recommend spot cleaning if need be. Dry Clean in extreme circumstances.
The hat is shipped via USPS and is insured.
