Aka Tombo hat of the day
Within Buddhism the lotus flower has become a symbol for awakening to the spiritual reality of life. In modern times the lotus flower represent life in general. As the lotus flower grows up from the mud into a object of great beauty people also grow and change into something more beautiful (hopefully!). So the symbol represent the struggle of life at its most basic form.
This gorgeous cocktail hat is made from a vintage green kimono adorned with yellow, white and pink lotus flowers and finished with a chic bow of the same fabric.
