Pink thistle saucer hat with scottish thistle

Pink thistle saucer hat with scottish thistle


The Scottish Thistle is the oldest recognised National Flower.
Legend has it that in the 13th century the Viking army of the Norse king Haakon planned a stealth attack on the sleeping Scottish army by shedding their socks and creeping through the grass in the middle of the night. The barefooted soldiers quickly happened upon the thistles growing among the grass and the screams of pain from the startled vikings awoke the Scots who quickly charged the invaders and claimed victory.

This showstopper of a hat is blocked on a small saucer shape clock with the back of the hat slightly taller than the front and finished off with a vibrant raspberry and deep purple thistle made from Harris Tweed.

Made of a deep pink sinamey this hat is light as a feather, designed to sit at a slight angle, will fit any head size and is kept in place with a black hairband.

Old school all the way, all my hats are made from scratch by myself using the highest quality fabrics the same way that your Great Grandmas hats were made meaning they are tough enough to last a lifetime and become a family heirloom all of your own.

Postage from Japan takes 7-14 days. If you need your hat sooner I can send it EMS which is insured, tracked and takes 3-5 days. If you require EMS postage please convo me BEFORE you purchase the hat so postage costs can be amended. EMS costs $20 to all destinations.

Orders that are shipped to countries outside Japan may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees levied by the destination country. The recipient of an international shipment may be subject to such import taxes, customs duties and fees, which are levied once a shipment reaches your country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by the recipient; Aka Tombo has no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; you should contact your local customs office for further information. When customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond my original delivery estimates.
