2294 Skep Hat PDF

$4.00 Each

Part of the Homegrown Hat Collection, the Skep Hat resembles an old-fashioned bee skep overflowing with honeycomb. Bees once built their hives in the underside of the skep, a handmade basket of sorts with a small hole in one side for bee entry and exit, so this Skep is more of an artist’s interpretation of how one works. They’re much kinder, as is this hat project with its integrated welts and cables construction.
