The YES Hat
Upcycled and restored from the shell of a mass-produced baseball hat, the YES hat was rewoven by needle with vintage linen thread. The playful woven work combines three distinct patterns in shades of wheat. The word YES is hand-embroidered in a satin-stitch overlay. This hat evokes the vast fields of the United States as well as the resilience of homesteading, the love of things handmade and well made. The linen thread was carefully selected to slowly change in color. It will fray but the strong woven pattern means that this will take time. This hat is built to last. It is meant to be beloved.
