Re: Hats and Headresses

A combination of a nasty sinus infection and bronchitis has laid me low, but I’m back now with some cool pictures of hats and headresses that I’d like to share.

First up, here’s an awesome tufted hat that I think would be great for winter wear. I have no idea how they get the yarn to stand up like that on the crown of the hat, but it’s just too fun:

Here’s the link to the New Jersey company that makes them.

Who wouldn’t want to wear this special headdress on their wedding?

A more practical hat by the same European fiber artist (Constance Willems):

This knit hat has two tails which can be wrapped to the front and twisted to give this cool turban effect. To check out this hat on Constance’s site, click here. To see her Wedding Crown hat page, click here. is a site that sells clothing and headscarves for conservative Jewish women who want to cover up in public. However, it’s also a handy site for conservative Christian and Muslim women who want attractive and fashionable clothes as well as Middle Eastern dancers and Renaissance re-ennactors looking for an ethnic headcoverings. The headscarf section is particularly nice because they give step by step instructions on to tie the scarves into various turban shapes. This is the Rapunzel:

Neat, huh? Who knows, maybe the fashionable headscarf will make a come-back.

    Whoops, my bad! Constance is really an European designer. In retrospect, the “de” suffix at the end of her site URL should have clued me in. What can I say, I was still on drugs at the time I wrote the post…. 🙂
