Becka - one of a kind / ready to ship couture parasisal hand blocked cloche style hat


This lovely, hand blocked parasisal hat is a classic brimmed cloche style. The hat is a medium / large, but because of it's cloche style, it's meant to sit loosely on the head and even over the ears, depending on your hair style. A hat sizer can be added to make a tighter fit if desired.

The hat is blocked in natural top grade parasisal weave. The band is 100% pure dupioni silk in a luxurious burnished gold color, as is the matching bias brim edge band. Two large silk peonies adorn the front and side of the brim, cascading slightly over the edge with flirtatious charm and timeless style. Finally, the handmade flowers are finished with center buttons made from matching gold dupioni silk. It's these little touches that really make a bespoke chapeau exactly that - one of a kind and simply beautiful.

I ship most packages via USPS and USPS Priority Mail.  I ship to all US addresses and most International addresses.

Because of new postal rules in the US, I cannot ship larger hats via First Class International Mail. The package size exceeds the maximum length + girth allowed. International customers will have the option of either Priority Mail International (6-10 Business days) OR Express Priority Mail International (3-5 business days).

International customers are responsible for any customs and processing fees levied by a foreign government. Customs may also cause delays in delivery time, so please plan accordingly.  If your purchase is returned to us by the postal service due to unpaid Customs fees, A Pate Designs is not responsible to refund your money or for additional costs to reship the item(s).

I normally ship within 1-3 business days of receiving payment for your "Ready to Ship" and/or "In-stock" purchase.

Made to Order items take 1-4 weeks to complete, depending on the item and depending on the time of year and current order log. Rush orders are sometimes available for an additional fee.  International Racing schedules, such as Kentucky Derby, Royal Ascot, Melbourne Cup, etc. could extend production time by an additional 4 or more weeks depending on the amounts of orders we are processing.  Please allow as much time as possible when ordering custom headpieces around these busier times.

All my couture hat designs are hand-blocked and stitched in my studio using traditional, time honored, millinery techniques.  If you are interested in a custom hat of any kind, please feel free to email me at  Thanks for visiting my shop!
