The history of the parabuntal
Parabuntal is a rigid vegetable fibre from the Philippines. This fibre comes from a shrub from which the fibres are removed from the pith of the trunk with tweezers. The fibres are then woven together one by one. Indeed, it is a meticulous work of braiding which can take more than one year to make a capeline. Moreover, this skill is passed on from generation to generation. Unfortunately, this sublime material is no longer produced. The House of Fabienne Delvigne is fortunate to still have a few products. It is with infinite honour that she works this exceptional material.
Packaging of the natural straw fedora hat
First , Maison Fabienne Delvigne carefully wraps the hats in tissue paper, and then places them in a black hat box designed by herself. These boxes are made to measure for the House. Then we place a certificate of authenticity next to the hat.
