What Is A Cloche Hat?
The cloche or bell-shaped hat was made popular during the early 1900’s. It would be commonplace for these hats to be seen worn by women everywhere. These vintage hats still hold their appeal today, as many companies are re-thinking its design and reinvigorating the fashion. Typically, cloche hats are made of some variation of felt, but we also carry cloth and straw “cloche” hats. Many of our Cloche hats are decorated with some form of embroidery, bows or other assorted accents. These hats make for the perfect addition to any outfit taking aspects of the past that still have a modern look today.
