Castello di Potentino
Potentino Felt Hat- Sou'wester
The Potentino felt is made in collaboration with Caseficio Murceti who graze their milk sheep around the castle's meadows and olive groves fertilising and keeping the grass short. The wool was going to waste after the annual shearing so we decided to wash it and use it to make the most beautiful felt. The seeds from the plants remain trapped in the felt after the cleaning making each piece totally unique. Each hat is made by hand taking many hours of labour.
