Salmon Hat by Nymla Salmon Hat by Nymla

This is a salmon hat! Its made of salmon skins that I've tanned. If I remember it correctly the light ones are undyed and the brown one is dyed with onion skins.
The hat can be worn in two ways, as seen in the pictures. Its lined with linen fabric. Made this last summer, sold at the medieval market at Visby Gotland.

Looks nice! :) Har du bild på mönstret nånstans? Det syns att de gråvita skinnen är fettgarvade, är den bruna färgad med nåt eller garvad i bark?

Tack :) Nää, jag tror jag improviserade mest och det var rätt längesen jag gjorde den :) Det bruna är färgat med lökskal.

Great! Could you say how you tanned the skin?

I remember I used fat, and not bark. But the details I don't know in my head, maybe you can find some info on the internet or in books :)

Yees, it was kind of easy as I remember it actually. Would love to do it again, maybe I can find some salmon skins somewhere, might have to go fishing :P
Thanks!
