Hat and jewelry... Off to the sun!

We have known Marie and Anne-Laure from the Macon et Lesquoy brand for several years. This year, we imagined a light, elegant and original hat that would combine our two skills: weaving and embroidery.

The theme of the Macon and Lesquoy collection this summer is Riviera , what could be better than a large embroidered hat for taking a stroll on the Croisette?

This hat is made in Azel, a small oasis located in the middle of the Sahara, not far from Agadez in Niger. Women, organized in a cooperative, harvest palm fibers, dry them and weave them using traditional techniques. The weaving produced is very fine, the straw is light, which gives them a lot of delicacy.
The grosgrain ribbons are made of slightly elastic polyester . The embroideries are made by hand in the Pakistani workshop in Macon and Lesquoy.

 paille et liberté

We offer hat ribbons of different sizes which, once placed on your hat, will adapt it to your head size.

 The cotton grosgrain ribbon is attached to itself with an elegant rivet signed M&L on one side. On the other side, a snap button will allow you to change the embroidery as you wish.

So what's your favorite hat? Which one do you want to put in your suitcase?

Treat yourself to this hand-woven hat and spend the summer cool...
