Just wondering what the loosely woven material on the outer layer of the brim of this hat is called and where you can purchase it. Thanks.
It is called Basket Weave/ Windowpane/ Latice Weave Sinamay. As you can imagine because of open weave it does not have strength of regular sinamay. Beware of cheap quality as you will need to pre-stiffen it yourself.
I would love to see a lesson about using transparent products like window pane sinamay or veiling to achieve this look. Is it principly the same as the crinolation techniques?
