A gentleman drawn to style needs to own this artisan-crafted hat in Scottish Tartan by Colette della Vedova (CDV).
Made in a classic fabric that beyond its clannish history speaks to timeless elegance, the milliner’s creation in the simplest of shapes is the quintessential accessory. Moreover, the hat becomes even more valuable as it exists to be paired with the umbrella featured on this page also in Scottish Tartan.
The hats and umbrellas stamped with the initials CDV are a guarantee of the highest quality and exquisite craftsmanship synonymous with Made in Italy. Their princely Scottish Tartan hat that revels in the rain as it does on a sunny day is no exception!
About the Designer
Nanni and Colette begin their adventure at the end of the 1970s in Cressa, a small village in the northern region of Piedmont situated near Lago Maggiore, the home of the handmade umbrella. Influenced and encouraged by a very dear friend who used to commission umbrellas in Italy on behalf of French luxury brands, Colette and her beloved spouse Nanni take on, with the greatest of ease, a very old craft championed by artisans before them.
To this day, CDV not only makes umbrellas strictly by hand, but they respect time honoured methods too. Moreover, the company is a staunch user of only the best materials like bamboo, valuable woods, and various kinds of skins and leather.
Handles made out of these natural materials are then matched in most unusual ways with panels of pure cotton, silk, lace, velvet, and also to printed polyester and jacquard fabrics, these too made exclusively in Italy.
