The story of the Native American woman, Pocahontas has long been of interest to me as she seems from the various tales about her life to have been a very remarkable lady. Research shows up many inconsistencies in the various stories and indeed Disney's portrayal may have been much romanticised but nevertheless she appears to have been a tour de force. This small fitting hat from Ratty Tat Hats is called Pocahontas given its North American tribal style inclusions, I hope I have managed to achieve a mix of romance but practical in its design.....bit like its namesake herself. The warm spice coloured mix of fabrics blend beautifully with the woven braid and the hatpin, flowers and feathers have been added to complement. 

 

Pocahontas is a midnight black top hat with a 5” high crown. It is handmade from 100% wool with all embellishments hand sewn into position, lined with Ratty Tat Hat's branding, pale gold satin and finished to a fine heirloom quality. Each hat is presented in its own Ratty Tat hatbox and securely sent in a double-skin outer box.

  • The size shown above is the circumference of the hat's inner headband. We would suggest using a dressmaker’s tape measure to ascertain the head circumference of the wearer (measurement to be taken from above eyebrows and around widest part of head). Ratty Tat Hats are made from heavy wool and therefore quite rigid so measurements need to be accurate in order to provide a comfortable fit.

Steampunk is a Neo-Victorian style which includes science fiction and fantasy references. It conjures up thoughts of steampowered machinery, airships, pioneers and swashbuckling adventures whilst often embracing the romance of Victorian glamour.

 

There are many examples of Steampunk influences within films such as Alice in Wonderland, Around the World in 80 Days, Sherlock Holmes and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.
