Sewn Milan Capelines
Milan Capelines (“Sewn Mottleds”) are made from wheatstraw braids. The superfine ones cost a fortune, but even standard grades – as shown here – have a price, increasing year by year. The braids are sewn together using machines that are 100 years old.
The Huge Sewn hats, 25cm brim are made from wheatstraw and petersham braids sewn together.
