groundwork: survival bonnet (does that make it a helmet?)
groundwork: survival bonnet. This is my latest treatment of my aviator helmet / hat / bonnet design. It's made from rugged canvas, sewn with exposed frayed seams, hand-dyed in browns, khaki and chestnut, then I've hand-stitched details in gray cotton.
I made several of these and no two are the same: we photographed each one — you're getting exactly the hat you're looking at here.
These hats go great with anything earthy but have a specific affinity for overalls.
particulars: • rough size: One size. The glass head measures 22 inches around the brow and this fits it loosely, with plenty of room for hair. Since it doesn't have to be fitted around your brow it works well as a one-sized item. • fabric: 100% cotton canvas • care: hand wash - dry flat • hand made by me in my studio and hand dyed by me as well
