Llandeilo

One hat with a label of  John James of Llandeilo, shows the straight arrangement of the warp in the silk plush. The top face of the brim was made of a single piece of fabric, with a hole cut in the centre, unlike most of the hats made by Christys and the Bristol firms which had the plush stretched around the top and underside of the brim in one piece.
