I created this headpiece for the 2021 HATalk Competition; The shape of the feature is called a 'hyperbolic paraboloid' - a mathematical construct; It appears curved but is made up of a series of straight wooden skewers. The skewers are hand painted and mounted onto a brushed velvet button block base.


All headpieces are made to order and subject to a deposit (the lesser of €50 or 50% of the cost of the headpiece) at the time of order. Please allow a minimum lead time of 2 weeks for Collection pieces. You are more than welcome to arrange a visit to view and try on the sample headpiece if you wish before purchase. Alternatively, videos of the headpiece can be made available upon request.


Please be advised that choice of colours shown for the Collection headpieces may not be exactly as they appear on screen. Swatches of material can be posted to the customer upon request, for the standard An Post packet cost. If you wish to colour match a Collection headpiece with an outfit, it is advised to avail of the Hats by Rachel Custom Colours Service.
