The straw hat, a cult hat...

The straw hat for men, women or children is an accessory that smells of the belle saison, vacations and sunny strolls in the heart of summer... Its varied shapes and the comfort it provides, make it a timeless accessory that is constantly on the front pages of the tabloids. Yellow or white, trimmed with decorative elements or a matching ribbon, it'll be up to you and your desires!

Where does the straw hat come from?

The straw hat has been present on every continent for centuries, and was already used in ancient times. It can be found on statuettes of Greek women wearing a round, wide-brimmed straw hat, known as a tholia. Later, in the Middle Ages, straw hats, also with wide brims, were worn mainly by peasants to protect themselves from the sun during sowing, gathering, haymaking and other activities. During the Renaissance, it became a mixed fashion accessory, very much in vogue at the court of kings...

Elegant women take hold of this hitherto popular hat. In the 19th century, ladies considered garden hats to be particularly elegant, vying for originality by embellishing them with ribbons and flowers. The 19th century also saw the arrival of the famous canotier, an essential style whose image remains linked to guinguettes, music hall and cycling.

How to braid a straw hat?

If you want to make your own straw hat it's likely to be very time-consuming and tedious. In fact, it's easier for people with basic sewing skills to make their own hats. If, however, you like a challenge, we recommend following some YouTube tutorials, in which you'll be shown how it's done. To begin with, we recommend that you opt for a raffia-type straw, which is softer and more malleable. Real straw, on the other hand, is much more difficult to work with, and only craftsmen are capable of braiding it without breaking it.

The art of straw hats...

In the 18th century, the painter Rubens dedicated a painting to it simply entitled "le chapeau de paille" (the straw hat), and the same would be true of Élisabeth Vigée-Lebrun's "Autoportrait au chapeau de paille" (Self-portrait with straw hat). Vincent Van Gogh painted no fewer than 24 self-portraits in all, including 7 in which he wore a straw hat. Nor was Renoir the last to feature this headgear, notably in "La Fille au Chapeau de Paille", but also in numerous paintings depicting portraits of young women, popular balls or scenes of life.

The famous canotier, also painted by Renoir, has styled such famous figures as Maurice Chevalier, Gabrielle Chanel, Fred Astaire and Audrey Hepburn in the world of cinema, music hall and fashion. More recently, international actors such as Johnny Depp and Leonardo Di Caprio have worn it in some of their films. Not to be outdone by the ladies, Chloë Sevigny, Diane Kruger, Louise Roe and Jessica Alba have made it their hat of choice and are racking up the likes on Facebook...
