all sizes, available, low profile, slate green, Spring Cleaning, tiki -

After making two prototypes it only took another two years and the great Spring Cleaning initiative to get around to making a few Hei Tikis for sale! Since this is the last of this particular fabric, we were only able to make 13 Hei Tiki fezzes available. When these are gone there won't be any more like them.  The Hei Tiki is a traditional Maori design, often a carved in jade and is usually a representation of an ancestor. This has always been one of my favorite traditional tiki designs and it is finally available again.$50+shipping

Then two things happened that kicked it all in gear. First we received an email from Turtle Matt Last filled links. The...

I've had this fabric for a while now but wasn't quite sure what to put on it. I love the texture of it and I knew the design needed to be something that would enhance that. Then came a request from Ginger for a palm tree fez for her and her brother to wear whilst enjoying cigars. I hope this is close to what she had in mind.I'll probably do a bit more experimenting with the colors but I do plan to do a small batch of these for the Summer. SOLD
