Montera - Torero Hats

A charming wooden box arrived at work this morning containing the first part of our Torero's costume. This Montera or bullfighter's hat, comes from Justo Algaba in Madrid.
I can't bear the thought of an actual bullfight but researching the costumes and the making techniques is, of course, fascinating.
Tomorrow I'm going to Justo Algaba's studio to look at costumes and consider what we need for filming purposes. Can't wait.
