Travel in style with all the elegance of a bygone era.
We have designed this hat to take you around the world, protecting your complexion, without adding bulk to your luggage. You may or may not be familiar with the Graeme Greene novel which has lent it's name to our favourite hat, but we can tell you the central character, Aunt Augusta was an eccentiric lover of life & adventure, portrayed perfectly in the movie version by Dame Maggie Smith.
Individually handcrafted in our Melbourne atelier, we use fabrics in linen, linen/cotton blends or heavy weight cotton, with only a few hats made in any one fabric.
The brim may be worn fully down in the style of Holly Golightly's Chapeau du Matin, or turned up at the front or side, as you wish. The stylish & detachable bow is made from matching fabric, however, is detachable and interchangable with any of the bows in our collection.
For travelling, simply lay flat in the top of your suitcase or in your overhead luggage compartment with confidence, knowing your Travels With My Aunt hat will easily pop back into shape.
Decorative hand stitching pays homage to our compass logo, with a spacious interior, fully lined with our signature striped cotton lining which helps this jute bag to keep its slouchy shape. Two leather straps with metal buckles and a single magnetic button closure, keep your things safe inside & a small internal zip pocket takes care of your important smaller belongings.
