history of the cloche hat
the cloche hat was originally designed in the early 1900's but became increasingly popular during the 1920's. named “cloche” after the french word for bell, due to its initial bell shape, the reputation of this hat was evident in the fact that it even influenced women's hairstyles of that time. women started wearing their hair in a short, slicked down fashion as to better showcase the specific shape of the hat.
our cloche hat is a modern twist on the 20s classic, while showcasing a straighter less belled out design for a contemporary flair. like its original version, our recycled sweater hat is also made of felted wool. historically cloche hats were made of this material to help them conform to the head.
the history of our upcycled wool products is just as important as fashion history to us. every baabaazuzu product is comprised of wool wearables that had a previous life. saving them from filling up our landfills, while providing you with earth friendly clothes and accessories is something we are proud of.
have fun this winter. stay warm and cozy with baabaazuzu's head over heels, recycled sweater hat collection!
