Indulge in an array of techniques to explore the charm of Sinamay.
Sinamay is an impressive, versatile millinery fabric derived from the abaca tree, a banana palm native to the Philippines.
Amazingly, this strong, woven, rough textured material can produce hat foundations with a sharp defined shape and yet, as if by magic, can be manipulated to produce trims as delicate as a butterfly.
By familiarising yourself in the various processes you will be “smitten “and the joy will be in “what ever takes your fancy “
