Straw Forms

We create our forms ourselves from flat plait. Each style is carefully recreated from original straw bonnets in our collection of over 200 extant bonnets dating from the 18th and 19th centuries.  Blanks or forms are available hand/machine sewn, blocked, wired, and bound in hemp plait. Hemp plait looks like period horsehair/crin plait.  Plait is under lapped from front to back as was done on original bonnets.
