Cloche hats, or cloches, are bell-shaped hats for women. They were first designed in 1908, but became popular around the 1920s. Its name is derived from ‘cloche’, the French word for ‘bell’. Originally, ladies’ cloche hats were made from felt and were designed to be worn low on the forehead. The wearers’ eyes would just slightly peek out below the brim. Later, other models, such as cloche sun hats were made of straw to be more suitable for warmer weather.
