A wide range of fabrics has been put to use to make the range with furs, snakeskin, jersey, velvet and felt being the most popular.

In black felt is "Bandilero". And for the "trendies" is "Outback" a stetson style trimmed with mock crocodile skin and giant gilt buckle.
Red fox - the favourite in the fashion stakes for the past few winters - turns up in this exotic hat "Natasha"teamed with toning organza. Long ties complete the style with pom poms of red fox at the bottom.
