Details of the velvet felt fedora hat
Velvet felt fedora hat with matching grosgrain ribbon. Ideal for the autumn and winter seasons, this hat is available in several colours.
Like cashmere for a jumper, velvet felt is soft to the touch. It is also flattering to the face thanks to its velvety appearance that reflects on the face. This hat is, in fact, light, especially if you work it with care and lightness as Fabienne Delvigne does. Moreover, this soft material is waterproof.
The fedora hat: its history
The fedora hat has always been considered a classic in the world of hats.
First of all, the name fedora comes from the hat worn by the actress Sarah Bernhardt when she played the heroine of the play “Fedora” by Victorien Sardou.
Unavoidable, it is also worn by many actors like Humphrey Bogart in the film Casablanca, or Harrison Ford in Indiana Jones. It is also found in the film Borsalino by Alain Delon and Jean-Paul Belmondo.
Finally, the fedora hat is a timeless accessory: it is worn by both men and women in everyday life.

To maintain velvet and melusine felts, they should be brushed regularly with a clothes brush. For example, to remove any dust and to raise the hair. Indeed, brushing gives the hat its lustre and shine.
First, Maison Fabienne Delvigne carefully wraps the hats in tissue paper. Then places them in a black hat box designed by Fabienne Delvigne. These boxes are tailor made by Maison Fabienne Delvigne. Then, we place a certificate of authenticity next to the hat. Finally, we delicately perfume the hat with Guerlain’s “Eau de Cashmere”. A reminiscence of the beautiful collaboration between our two Maisons.
