Tekla is a stunning oversized bloom in classic white silk satin with an overlay of black window pane sinamay. Each of the 15 flower petals has a hand sewn border wire for support and a hand sewn black bias crinoline edging. 15 hours total of meticulous hand sewn luxury! The small round base is also a circle of satin and sinamay, as well as the spherical center flower bud center. The center of the flower is accented with a small spray of black dotted tulle. The base is also wrapped in the tulle with a peek-a-boo veiling and an abstract bow / poof at the back. The hat is held in place securely and comfortably with two elastic hat bands that go behind the head and under the back hairline.
This is a custom, one of a kind hat. This hat can be ordered in this color combination or various other color combinations depending on what stock and materials are available. It can also be made in a smaller version. If you are interested in this or any other custom millinery work, please convo me!
If you are unhappy with your purchase, please contact me WITHIN 72 HRS of RECEIPT to receive an authorization for returns. Returns are sometimes accepted, but only for UNWORN items, if still complete with all tags attached and original packing materials. Items must be returned within 10 days of receipt for refund of the purchase price of the item minus the shipping fees. Shipping fees are non-refundable. Buyer is responsible for return shipping costs, including full insurance and tracking.
ALL CUSTOM ORDERS ARE FINAL SALES.
No exchanges or returns, unless the item is somehow defective or damaged. During the design process, we will make every effort to work closely with you and communicate color and trim details, substitutions, etc. so there will be no final surprises. Always feel free to ask questions or make requests, but after the final design has been agreed upon, any changes may incur additional fees.
I ship most packages via USPS. Etsy will automatically calculate shipping costs at checkout based on the shipping address. I ship to all US addresses and most International addresses.
If you are ordering more than one item, please contact me prior to checkout so I can create a listing for you with accurate shipping fees. Etsy calculated shipping unfortunately does not take into consideration multiple items fitting into a box together, i.e. hat in hat box.
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.
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. Please see each item's shipping estimate for a more specific time frame. Rush orders are sometimes available for a fee.
All my couture hat designs are hand-blocked and hand-stitched in my studio using traditional couture millinery techniques. All trims, borders, crowns and brims, and embellishments are hand sewn, as they have been for hundreds of years of hat making. Occasionally, in more contemporary designs, the use of such items as Swarovski crystals, leather, etc, may be adhered by different methods, but this will always be noted in the description. If you are interested in a custom hat of any kind, please feel free to convo me! Thanks for visiting my shop!
