Hand Embroidered Floral Scarf with Straw Boater Hat
This straw boater hat and scarf is part of a limited edition collaboration between Myaraa (by Namrata Lodha) and Kate Stoltz.
Intricate flowers hand embroidered by female artisans in India grace the center of the scarf. Natural straw boater hat has adjustable string to adjust to head size.
Scarf can also be tied around brim instead of the chin, covered the eyelet holes.
Inspired by: When Namrata approached Kate about doing the collaboration, one of the first things that Kate wanted to include in the scarves was the intricate embroideries done by artisans working in Namrata's workshop. Since the hat was made for protection from the sun and derived from sustainably sourced straw, inspiration for the collection was derived from natural landscapes and materials along with classic style icons that wore hats during the 1950's and 1960's. Flowers naturally wove themselves into that picture, making this design an important part of the collection
Styling Tips: Both pieces were designed to be worn together or separately. This scarf and hat set was designed for sunny fall or spring days spent in the orchards or the beach, with the scarf being removed and worn as a light shawl once the sun sets and the earth chills. The scarf can be worn on the straw boater hat tied around the chin or simply tied at the back of the hat (with the scarf covering the eyelets) for a more conventional look. The vibrant flowers make this a great headband or addition to a white t-shirt and jeans, a blazer or dress.
Meanwhile, the natural straw boater hat can be worn with the butterfly skull scarf or with your own silk scarf or ribbon. Add the black Petersham ribbon to tie around the brim for a classic look that you can quickly switch into.
Hat by Myaraa Details: Sustainably sourced straw is hand woven and sewn into a classic boater hat by experienced female artisans in the Myaraa workshop located in India. The artisans personally collect straw from local wheat fields, using high quality natural materials that are left in the fields after the farmers harvest the wheat. By paying their workers fair wages, Myaraa's founder, Namrata Lodha, is leading the fashion industry with a more ethical, sustainable and fair supply chain that starts with sourcing the fiber and the artisans that harvest these fibers and eventually turn them into an expertly made, light summer hat.
Hat Size: 3.5" brim
