The Provence is a hallmark Helen Kaminski hat with a 10cm brim that can be styled up or down. Featuring a hand rolled raffia tie for adjusting size and a neoprene band for comfort, Provence rolls to pack making it a perfect travel accessory. With over 15,000 crochet stitches of sustainably harvested Madagascan raffia and taking over three days to complete, the Provence displays the true art form of artisanal handcraft with subtle variations being unique to each hat.
Helen Kaminski sources the finest, sustainably harvested Madagascan raffia that is hand selected, washed or dyed and seamlessly crocheted with no visible seams, knots or joins.
Raffia has a natural resin making it innately soft, supple and resilient; Unlike straw, raffia has longevity and won't crack or get brittle over time. Applying light steam will draw out the resin and help bring back its shape. (Copyright HELEN KAMINSKI 2021)
