Debra makes these extravagant velvet Ale Wife hats with matching over-the-top hat pins! Each hat pin is a one of a kind sculpture that is determined by the mood of the hat. The hat pins include various feathers, colorful berry sprays, fall foliage, pine cones, or silk floral. Each is unique!
We have added several photos of each hat from different angles, so you can get a complete idea of the luxuriousness!

Our Alewives Hat was first introduced in Waxahachie, Texas at Scarborough Renaissance Festival during the 2019 season. This hat is period to the Renaissance era, and was worn by women ale brewers. It is said that male brewers were not happy about the competition, and accused the women of selling a tainted brew, calling them witches.
Debra redesigned this hat giving the brim a fedora curve, and swept the pointed crown to the back, giving it more flare.
This hat is built with a elastic cord which stretches comfortably behind the head keeping the hat firmly on, even in the strongest of wind.
Each hat comes with a removable/repositionable feather hat pin.
