This striped silk abaca turban is truly stunning, and so fun to wear! I had so much fun draping this lovely silk abaca into elegant folds and rolls. The resulting shape is so sinuous and intriguing to look at, I stare at it every time I walk into my studio. I've embellished the beautiful base shape with a very large dusty pink silk rose slightly off center in the front, and added a tiny bit of some antique, probably-1920's-era silver lamé ribbon. (This ribbon is partly woven from some kind of metal and is extremely hard to find now, almost 100 years later.)
This turban has a comb stitched into the front so that you can anchor it into your hair and hold it in place as intended, with the rose a little off-center. I draped it on a 23-inch head block and it will fit this size head, accommodating probably quite a lot of hair tucked into it, too, if that's how you want to style it. It's a really lovely style made from very special materials indeed. I hope you love it as much as I do!

I'm so glad you asked! Avoid wearing a straw hat in wet weather because it will quickly lose its shape in the rain. You may also find that some dyed straws' colors will run when wet.
Avoid getting fabric trims like silk flowers, ribbon ornaments and veils wet as these can still look droopy even after they dry again.
If a felt hat becomes wet, stuff it loosely with tissue before allowing it to dry. If your felt looks dull or dusty, you can use a bristle brush to brush up the nap again.
To store, stuff your hat loosely with tissue paper to hold its shape, and put it in its hat box away from dust and sunlight. Never hang a hat or keep it on a stand or its shape could become distorted over time.
