There’s an excellent pictorial from craft artisan, lecturer, and costume designer, Rachel E. Pollock, on her professional blog, La Bricoleuse. It clearly sets out how to:
- rejuvenate the brittle straw in old hats; and
- how to repair a torn portion of a straw hat.
Now you may not be a Lead Crafts Artisan at the PlayMakers Repertory Company of Chapel Hill in North Carolina, but after you read Ms. Pollock’s post, you too will be able to save your vintage straw hat like a pro.
Thanks for reading,
CEO Hartford York
