Vintage 50s Black Wool Felt Pleated Trim Hat

Accordion pleated trim is made by folding fabric alternately in and out creating projecting pleats. Pleating is typically used as a part of the design of a garment, with the purpose of adding controlled fullness or taking up excess fabric. Here it is used as a design element in the trim of a hat.
