Falipa

$190.00
Madagascan raffia is hand-plaited in our dedicated Sri Lankan workshop to create our signature ~2.5 cm wide braid for the ‘Classic 5’ hat and a finer ~1.8 cm braid to make the contemporary ‘Falipa’ fedora and ‘Kate’ boater. Raffia is secured to a surface whilst the braid is crafted to the specific length required for each style. A Classic 5 hat can take up to 5 metres of braid, requiring 1.5 days to craft. In order to ensure a continuous finish, the craftsperson gradually feeds new strands into the plait so that no joins are visible to the eye.
