Tit for Tats- Hats

It seems to have been a Hat week , must be all this lovely sunshine .
Has anyone any idea where this beautifully woven straw might come from?
The English Panama is a classic, I love them , makes me think of English garden fetes and cream teas " more tea vicar ".
I have a collection of field bonnets which I would love to share when I have worked out how to display them.

Poundbury Brocante and Antique Textile Fair






“A Talent For Textiles “ is a West Country group of Antique textile dealers  who hold
