Straw braid sewn in Vienna/Austria Size 56Together with „Biester“ millinery Vienna we developed the convertible Straw hat/mask. To make the transformation possible, the pointed head is slightly oversized. Below the small shield on the head the brim is split and bordered with a flexible wire. It allows to pull the brim down and keep it in place on your nose opening up the slit wide enough to look through. Placed correctly the brim covers about as much as a face shield would do. However, the hat has a very wide brim and is in it’s first function an excellent sun screen. No rays of sunshine will pass through the fine straw braid.
