Gail Carriger Discusses Felted Hat from the 1890s


I'm kinda obsessed with felted hats. Sadly, Fashionable Reader, I usually can't wear them (wool allergy). I love a vintage felted and folded cloche and I do tend to associate this kind of hat with the 1920s-1940s. Yes I am aware they hung around.

I have a couple pretty nifty ones from the 1950s.

I suppose I knew they must have felted hats in the Victorian era but I don't often encounter elaborate folded versions in my fashion wanderings. So you can imagine my delight when I saw this little beauty at a recent exhibit!

    "The Victorian hat is looks like a very strange impressionistic take on rabbit ears..in nice colours."
