Nothing gets a vintage lover’s heart racing faster than stumbling across an untouched stash of New Old Stock anything. In this case, the stock was a stack of jaw-dropping 1940s Swisona farmers’ and gardening woven palm straw hats, NWT (New With Tags).
But it gets better – just look at these hats! The jackalope is wearing our favorite of the bunch, a Jackson Pollock style gardening hat decorated with random speckled paint colors, circled and edged with a sweet floral feedsack fabric ribbon. Just beyond beyond.
Paper label reads:
Hand Woven Palm - In Rain or Shine
Swisona PROCESSED SHOWERPROOF
This New Hat will Look FRESH and New LONGER
PRODUCT OF WESTERN HEMISPHERE
