The “Lisafortuna” headdress is made of banana fibres and silk. A material of exceptional quality. It was made in memory of one of the designer’s “hat mothers”. This elegant headdress is so easy to put on. It can accompany your most beautiful outfits thanks to its very fashionable and trendy side. Wear this headdress for a ceremony, you’ll make the difference. It is available in several colours on our E-boutique and in our workshop in Brussels. It is available in white, beige, dark beige, powdered, red, orange and black.
Handmade in our workshop in Brussels, Belgium, it can be made to measure in other colours and materials, according to your wishes.
The story of this headdress for ceremony:
Like a cycle, the trunk of the banana tree releases its stems after having shared its fruits with us. This fiber, which at first glance seems rather crude, is often left on the ground or burnt, and could bring disease or end up being lost and wasted. But thanks to a meticulous purification, it is freed from insects and other parasites.
Then they are placed fiber by fiber in old looms where they are finely woven in workshops in the Philippines or Cameroon. The result of this painstaking work is this sublime linen-like material with a very delicate sheen. Some are mixed with fine silk threads. This material is dedicated to form many exceptional works. These creations are the result of a circular and humanitarian economy.
Indeed, this adventure does not stop here, for in our Maison, women are at the center of our concerns. And thanks to this new opportunity, many women have been able to find their independence and provide for themselves in an autonomous way.
Of course, for us, creation takes its course. After arriving in our workshop in Brussels in the center of Europe, the material is delicately colored by hand and then sculpted and shaped by the skilled fingers of the designer. In our hats signed Maison Fabienne Delvigne, you will find this slightly pearly raw material, a symbiosis of nature, humanism and art.
