Recently I've been trying to get together a nice pirate inspired coord for the Sterling Renaissance Festival and I decided that a tricorn hat would really pull the outfit together. After a little bit of tutorial searching and some relatively unsuccessful attempts at making my own from felt, I decided it would probably be better to let someone a little bit more crafty than myself make one. I found an amazing hat by Tea Time Inc. on Etsy.
The hats can be made in brown or black and there are two different styles available. I chose the black hat as pictured in the stock image. I placed my order and payed on June 7th. I received an email on June 9th letting me know that my hat had been shipped. I was shocked to come home and find the package on my doorstep on June 10th.
The hat was well packaged in a box and with plenty of tissue paper to keep it from banging around in there.
The hat itself is very well put together. The stitches are all even and well placed. The hat is made from real leather as stated in the item description. It is definitely sturdy. There is no hot glue here. Everything is strongly stitched together.
The hat has an elastic band that is meant to go under the neck. The band is not adjustable but is at a comfortable yet supportive length.
Communication:5/5 Since our transaction was finished in like three days there wasn't much of a need for communication. I was informed when my item was shipped.
Shipping: 5/5 My hat was shipped quickly and arrived extremely fast (Washington-New York in 2 days)
Quality: 5/5 The craftsmanship was perfect. No complaints here.
So that's my review. I've got my eye on some of her other items for the future. I highly recommend her work!
