This piece was created to highlight the issue of abandoned "ghost" fishing equipment adrift in our seas, endangering aquatic life.
Leonora has no affiliation with this charity but has chosen to donate to them in particular as they have been involved in projects off the coast of Ireland. The donation of €28 will be made following the sale, and a receipt will be sent to you by email, if provided.
Sinamay veiling is hand crafted natural alternative to traditional nylon veiling. It is made from fibres from the abaca tree.
The wire headband is designed for comfort over a long period of time, and is made of sturdy millinery wire so it does not spring back into shape if stretched. Because of this, it needs to be put on slightly differently to normal.
Tighten the ends of the band together first, and then slide onto the head without stretching the band open.
